Deconstructed Spring Roll Salad is a great recipe from Monet Moutrie’s Anecdotes & Applecores. All the elements of a restaurant spring roll come to life in this easy appetizer. Pork chops are marinated in a mixture of classic Asian ingredients that also doubles as a flavorful dressing.
Deconstructed Spring Roll Salad
Yield: 12 servings
2 tablespoons Thai Kitchen Premium Fish Sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon McCormick Gourmet Chives
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon Thai Kitchen Sweet Red Chili Sauce
2 boneless pork chops, 1/2-inch thick
12 wonton wrappers
1/2 cup shredded carrots
5 cups spring mix salad greens
1. Mix fish sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, chives, soy sauce and chili sauce in small bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Reserve 1/2 of the vinaigrette. Place pork chops in sealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add remaining vinaigrette; toss to coat well. Refrigerate 30 minutes
2. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray both sides of wonton wrappers with no stick cooking spray. Place a 12-cup muffin tin upside down. Press a wonton wrapper around the outside of each muffin cup. Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until wonton wrappers are lightly browned. Cool on wire rack
3. Grill or broil pork chops until desired doneness. Cool slightly. Cut into thin strips. Mix salad greens, pork and carrot in large bowl. Add reserved vinaigrette; toss to coat well. Fill wonton cups with salad mixture. Serve immediately.
