This is my favorite salad, it’s one of my mom’s recipes that I grew up with…yum yum, I love to bring to potlucks or to make it for BBQ’s or large groups of people. It’s so easy to make and everyone always loves it! I just made it for our 4th of July BBQ so I thought I’d post it in case anyone wanted to recipe.
1 head Napa cabbage, shredded
6 stalks green onion, sliced
2 cups cold, cooked chicken, sliced thinly (optional)
1 cup toasted slivered almonds
½ cup toasted & salted sunflower seeds
¼ cup toasted sesame seeds
2 packages Top Ramen noodles, Oriental flavor
Mix cabbage, green onion & chicken in large bowl. Put Ramen noodles in a Ziploc bag and break up with a rolling-pin. Pour Ramen noodles into skillet on medium-low heat and toast with nuts, and seeds until just golden. Set aside until the salad is ready to be served.
1/3 cup Chinese Seasoned Rice Vinegar
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
¼ cup sugar
2 Top Ramen seasoning packets from Oriental flavor Ramen
10 drops of sesame oil, or to taste
1 cup salad oil
Mix together the first 5 ingredients in a jar or container with a lid. Shake well and set stand to dissolve the sugar and seasonings. When dissolved, add the oils. Do not mix the dressing with the salad until just before eating. Enjoy!
