#20925: No recipe...

I cheat and buy them pre-made at my local Chinese market. I fry to brown, then add a bit of water and cover them to steam . I make a platter of romaine, shredded red cabbage, carrots, and cilantro to arrange the cooked potstickers on. Sprinkle with a dressing I mix up of peanut oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, grated garlic, crushed ginger, chinese chili paste, and szechwan pepper (I never measure this, I just wing it). Dress the platter then sprinkle with chopped peanuts, cilantro and garnish with julienne cucumbers.

I serve this at nearly every dinner/party as an appetizer because it is so easy, so beautiful, gets a big "wow" factor from guests, and, it's so indescribably delicious, unexpected, and wonderful people just vacuum them up.
