1 cup shelled edamame (fresh soy beans)

cup red bell pepper, chopped

cup orange bell pepper, chopped

cup shredded (or julienned) carrots

1 cups shredded red cabbage

2-3 tablespoons chopped cilantro

teaspoon minced or grated fresh ginger

cup low-fat sesame-ginger salad dressing (Newman's Own preferred)

12 won ton wrappers

Oil for frying

Chinese 5-spice powder, to taste, optional

In a large bowl, toss the cooked pasta, corn kernels (you don't need to cook them), edamame, chopped peppers, shredded carrots, red cabbage, cilantro and ginger; stir with a large spoon to combine.

Pour cup dressing over all and fold to combine. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Slice won ton wrappers into - to -inch strips. Heat an inch or so of peanut oil in a large, shallow skillet. When hot, scatter a small handful of won ton strips into the oil and cook them until golden, 5-10 seconds. Remove to a paper towel to drain. Sprinkle with Chinese 5-spice powder, if desired. Repeat with remaining won ton pieces. Once cooled, store in an airtight container.

Before serving, stir another cup dressing into the salad. Garnish with won ton strips.

Serve four to six.
