Crispy spring rolls and a Mandarin Wonton Salad are perfect complements to the Mongolian Stir Fry. The Mandarin Wonton Salad features a colorful blend of spring mix tossed with edamame, carrots, red peppers, red onions, crispy wonton strips, and Mandarin orange slices. The salad is paired with an optional Oriental Sesame dressing that helps pull all the flavors together.  The spring rolls and Mandarin Wonton Salad are available for a limited time.
