Crab Rangoon Canapes

I love crab rangoon, but try to avoid fried food. This has all the flavors of the classic dish, only with fewer calories. It's a great summer appetizer. You can usually find wonton strips at the store with the croutons and other salad toppings. —Cheryl Woodson, Liberty, Missouri
