Who doesn't love a good Asian salad? The tangy and sweet dressing and the crunchy veggies, it's one of those perfect meals for me. However many restaurant versions clock in at around 900 calories (?!?) and many times leave out our vegetarian friends. This simple version uses vegetarian chick'n strips and cuts the calories with a dressing that is just sweet enough. I also cut out the crispy wonton strips or fried noodles, but you could always add some on if that's your thing. Just be careful about the portion size.
