Drizzle with cilantro pesto, sprinkle with black sesame seeds and toasted chopped macadamia nuts.
Note: try baking the wonton square rather than frying if you are looking to cut calories.
½ bunch cleaned and dried cilantro
2 cloves peeled garlic

Combine all ingredients in a blender pitcher and blend until smooth.
Do not overblend or else pesto will get bitter and discolored.
