Pot Sticker Salad

Some nights I just want something quick to feed everyone, preferably something lighter than pizza or burgers. Thanks to the wonders of frozen pot stickers, here is one I like:

Pot Sticker Salad
Bag(s) frozen pot stickers (there are about 12 per bag)
Napa cabbage (1 large head for 5-6 people)
Roasted peanuts
Sesame oil (or olive oil)
Soy sauce
Rice wine vinegar
Sesame seeds

Start the pot stickers cooking according to the preferred directions on the bag. Pour included sauce into a small pitcher or bowl.

Peel the outer leaves off the Napa cabbage, then slice it into 1/2" slices. Place in a bowl and dress with roughly equal parts sesame oil, soy sauce, and rice wine vinegar; top with sesame seeds. If you have any green onions available, slice the white and light green parts and add them to the salad.

Pour peanuts into a bowl. When the pot stickers are cooked, place on a plate with the sauce. To eat, place salad on a plate, top with pot stickers and peanuts, and pour a little sauce over the pot stickers, if desired.
