In a 6- to 8-inch frying pan, shake almonds often over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Pour from pan. If peel is tight on mandarins, use a knife to cut it and white membrane from fruit, then cut between inner membranes to release fruit segments.

Asian Green Salad with Soy-Sesame Dressing
Asian Lettuce Wraps | Allrecipes
Just drizzle it with an intense, Creamy Sesame Sauce. Chinese Sesame Paste — This is ground sesame paste, and essentially a Chinese version of tahini. Sub: Tahini, of course. I find a chopstick or butter knife works better than a spoon. Peanut butter smooth — Natural, pure peanut butter is best here, for the most intense peanut flavour. But any regular smooth peanut butter spread will do just fine.
Romaine lettuce and baby greens are tossed together with the dressing and then top with slivered carrots, slivered cucumbers, diced tomatoes, and sesame seeds. If you want it to be a lower-carb salad, feel free to use more cucumbers and less carrots and tomatoes. Be sure to use Gluten-Free Soy Sauce affiliate link if needed. Be sure not to use seasoned rice vinegar which contains sugar. Grapeseed Oil affiliate link or Peanut Oil affiliate link will be good in this salad.
Delicious and bursting with flavor, Asian lettuce wraps are a great idea for entertaining or a family style meal. Each person can build their own fresh, delicious wrap. Just be sure to have plates or napkins available since the mixture can sometimes drip a little.
