Pot Sticker Salad

I found this recipe at the website Real Simple, and it looks so amazingly good. I love how few ingredients it has and how simple it seems to prepare. I love pot stickers as well, but they get boring just as an appetizer or meal. I think this might also be good without the pot stickers, and with some marinated chicken or beef instead.

-1, 1 pound bag of frozen pot stickers

-3/4 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed (about 4 cups)

-2 medium carrots, sliced

-1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce

-1 tablespoon sesame oil

-1/4 pound bean sprouts (about 1 and 1/2 cups)

-1/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped

-2 scallions, sliced

-Fill a large saucepan with 1 inch of water and fit with a steamer basket (or fill a large skillet with 1/2 inch of water). Bring the water to a boil. Place the pot stickers in the basket (or skillet), cover, and steam for 4 minutes.

-Add the snap peas and carrots, cover, and steam until the pot stickers are cooked through and the vegetables are tender, 4 to 6 minutes.

-Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the soy sauce and sesame oil. Divide the bean sprouts among bowls and top with the pot stickers and vegetables. Sprinkle with the peanuts and scallions. Serve with the sauce.
