Potsticker butter lettuce salad with orange segments

Updated on January 27, 2015

Make potstickers with butter lettuce and orange segments for a quick lunch

Potstickers are Asian dumplings which have a center filling of meat, vegetables, or combination of both. It can be boiled, steamed or fried and eaten with soy sauce or specially made dumpling sauce. You can choose to make these from scratch or buy the frozen potsticker bags available at the mainstream grocery stores. I use the frozen potstickers which are simple to prepare and makes a nice addition to a meal. Add potstickers to a bed of sweet butter lettuce for a quick, light, and nutritious lunch. Throw in some orange segments and my favorite salad dressing, and viola, lunch is ready in less than 20 minutes.

Follow this easy potsticker salad recipe

A non-stick frying pan with lid is best for cooking potstickers

Regardless of the name implies, you really do not want the potsticker to stick to the pan.

Add frozen potstickers flat side down - Do this for about 1 minute

Potstickers should be frozen when placed straight to the frying pan. Do not thaw potstickers as these will cause them to stick together. The name potsticker is a misnomer and you really do not want them to stick to the pan. Hence, a little oil is added to the non-stick pan to brown the dumplings.

Add 6 Tbsp. or 1/3 cup water - Enough to cover potstickers halfway

Cover and simmer fo 6 minutes - Most of the water should have evaporated

During this stage, the potstickers have been boiled and steamed at the same time. The potstickers will expand and the meat and vegetable filling become juicier.

Remove lid and brown on all sides - Wrapper becomes crunchier this way

Browning the wonton wrapper creates a crispier potsticker with a plump and tender filling.

Butter lettuce is also known as Bibb or Boston lettuce

Butter lettuce has a slightly sweet buttery flavor. It has large loose heads with soft folded leaves and make great bed for various salads. It is a great source of Vitamin A and K and folate. You can take a washed head of butter lettuce, tear the leaves apart and make a bed of salad.

For this recipe, I chose to use the washed, torn and packaged sweet butter lettuce for ease in food preparation. Prepare butter lettuce leaves in a salad bowl.

Transfer potstickers to a bed of butter lettuce, add orange segments and your favorite dressing

The orange segments adds a tangy flavor to the salad. Splash your favorite salad dressing and lunch is ready.

      Your pics looked tasty so we decdeid to try this place. The beef in the mala beef noodle soup was too chewy. The texture was like beef from an old cow. We think the beef (looked like beef shank) in the broth based soup would've been better. We saw our neighboring table order that and a side of hot oil. Then, they poured the oil into the soup to make their own mala noodle soup. We'll definitely try that approach next time.

      I'd love to try making this. I have only ever boiled my potstickers. I've never tried cooking them in a pan. The look delicious!
