To prepare the scallops, season lightly with salt & pepper, then toss in a small bowl with a large drizzle of Asian-style dressing (like Tropics). Heat a large pan on medium high and add the canola oil. Sear the scallops for about 3½ minutes each side, being careful not to crowd them in the pan so they brown nicely. Set aside to cool.

Toss the remaining salad ingredients together (Chinese cabbage through the sesame seeds) and lightly season with the dressing. Don’t over dress. Top each serving with the crushed won ton chips and a few scallops.
