Don't be shy about using the wasabi powder—the dressing is full of flavor, not heat. Rotisserie chicken works well for this salad, although any shredded cooked chicken will do.
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 teaspoon wasabi powder (dried japanese horseradish)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (11.4-ounce) package asian supreme salad mix (such as fresh express)
1 (8 1/4-ounce) can mandarin oranges in light syrup, drained
2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast (about 3/4 pound)
1 diagonally cut green onion
1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk.
2. Add salad mix to vinegar mixture, reserving wonton strips for topping and sesame-orange dressing for another use. Add oranges and chicken; toss gently to coat. Top evenly with onion and reserved wonton strips.
