1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted

1/4 cup black and white sesame seeds (toast white, if desired)

4 to 5 cups crisp deep-fried rice sticks, drained

Plum Sauce Dressing

1 (11-ounce) can Mandarin oranges, well drained

6 cups crisp fried won ton strips (see Note)

Just before serving, in large mixing bowl, combine lettuce, chicken, red cabbage, bean sprouts, 1/2 of green onions, 1/2 of almonds, sesame seeds and 2 cups rice sticks.

Toss with desired amount of Plum Sauce Dressing. Divide salad evenly among 4 dinner plates. Garnish with fried won tons, remaining green onions, almonds, Mandarin oranges and rice sticks, dividing evenly. Sprinkle with thinly sliced snow peas.

Makes 4 large servings

PLUM SAUCE DRESSING: In medium mixing bowl, whisk together 1 cup plum sauce (Lee Kum Kee OR Dynasty brand preferred), 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce, 1 teaspoon lite soy sauce, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 3 tablespoons sesame oil and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil until well blended. Keep refrigerated. Makes about 1 3/4 cups.

NOTE: To make won ton strips, cut 3 1/2-inch won ton wrappers from a 12-ounce package into 3 equal strips (leave wrappers stacked for easy cutting). Heat 3 inches vegetable oil in medium saucepan until very hot. Add won ton strips, several at a time, and cook until golden brown. With a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels to drain.
