When I think Super Bowl I think nachos, cheesy dips, pizza and wings. But with all those indulgent apps sometimes you need a lighter, better-for-you option to balance it out. I think your guests will go crazy for these Asian Cashew Chicken Salad Wontons! They are still super fun as all apps should be, but they sneak in some veggies that your guests will thank you for.

So how do you make these little wonton cups? It’s easy! Use a mini-muffin pan to form the wontons into little cups. Make sure the bottom is flat so they can both hold the salad and also stand up straight on a platter. Bake for 8 minutes at 375°F, cool, and they are good to go!

The key to appetizers is to make them easy to grab and eat in just a few bites. Generally it is hard to do that with a salad, but  here the wontons come in to save the day.

It is best if you can make the salad the night before or a few hours ahead of time so the dressing has time to marinate. You can also bake the wontons in advance! But don’t fill them until right before your guests arrive – no body likes a soggy bottomed wonton! 

No matter if you are team football or team apps (or team commercials, 😉 ) I wish you a Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
