Chinese Ramen Salad

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.


Ingredients

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.

 

 Salad Dressing

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!
