Mix all the salad ingredients, except wontons and sesame seeds in a large bowl and toss it.

For the peanut sauce dressing, mix all the ingredients except oil. Pour in the oil and stir it in till well blended.

Salads and me?? Never. One exception to the rule is Amisha's Thai salad. I just eat this salad when she makes it. I simply love it!
