I was first introduced to Chinese cabbage salad at a church potluck. And where there's a church potluck, there's good food and recipes. This salad is no exception. It's a dish that's tasty, easy and inexpensive to make. Try it out and tell me what you think. Directions below.
1 head of napa cabbage - Green cabbage can be substituted. Half of a green cabbage = 1 napa cabbage
3 green onions
4Tbs sliced almonds
2Tbs sesame seeds
2 packages of top ramen (chicken)
1 tsp oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup rice vinegar
2tsp soy sauce
1. Thinly slice the napa cabbage. Chop green onions. Mix together and set aside.
2. Crush the top ramen into bite size pieces while it's still in the bag. Remove the seasoning packets.
3. Saute the almonds, sesame seeds and top ramen (uncooked) in the butter and oil til lightly browned . Take off heat and mix in seasoning packets. Set aside.
4. Mix all the dressing ingredients together until well blended. I usually add everything into a jar and shake it up. Often I only use half of the dressing but it all depends on taste.
5. Mix dressing, cabbage mix, and top ramen mix all together. Serve immediately.
*If you plan on bringing this to a potluck, mix everything except the ramen mixture. Add that last when ready to serve. Otherwise, the ramen noodles will get soggy.
*Add cooked chicken chunks to make a hearty salad for lunch or dinner.
