Chinese Chicken Salad Cups

Whenever I’m asked to bring a salad to a party or potluck, my go to salad is Chinese chicken salad. This recipe is so delicious your friends will be asking you to bring it to their next party. I had an idea in my sleep the other night to make them in a wonton cup, so I experimented today and here’s the results. If you don’t want to do it this way, you can fry wonton skins and place them on the top of the salad thats in a bowl.
