Ingredients

  • 6-8 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 jicama, peeled and diced (about 1.5 cups)
  • optional: wonton strips (found near the salad dressings and croutons)
  • (for a non-vegetarian version, you can add grilled chicken!)

Dressing

  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1/3 cup oil (I used extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 5 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Instructions

  • Whisk together all ingredients for the dressing. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  • In a large bowl toss together lettuce, peppers, onions, and jicama. Serve with prepared dressing and top with crispy wonton strips and additional sesame seeds if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

*jicama is optional, if you can't find it at the store, just skip it - it will still be delicious!
**may sub distilled vinegar for rice vinegar in a pinch
