    Combine dressing ingredients. Refrigerate overnight.

    Slice won ton skins into thin strips. Deep fry, or fry in a pan of corn oil over medium-high heat until won tons are golden brown. Allow to cool on paper towels. This can be done several days in advance. Store in airtight container. Just before serving, combine iceberg, romaine, cucumber, tomato, 1/2 T Parmesan cheese blend, and all of the dressing.
