This is one of my all-time favorite salads and is always potluck favorite. Shredded cabbage, oriental flavors, onion, almonds and crunchy ramen noodles. There are many versions of this salad - here is mine. What makes it better than the other recipes? I toast my almonds. I use Nature's Seasoning + the seasoning packet from the ramen. Those are just the first few differences. Give it whirl - you will love it!
1 Pkg Cabbage, Pre-Cut
1 Pkg Oriental Ramen Noodles
1/2 Sliced Almonds, Toasted
1/2 Cup Sesame Oil
1/4 Cup Vinegar
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Bunch (5-6) Green Onion, cleaned and sliced
2 Teaspoons Nature's Seasoning
Step 1: In a large bowl, combine the seasoning packet from the ramen noodles along with the vinegar, oil, sugar and Nature's Seasoning. Mix well.
Step 2: Add to the bowl the cabbage, toasted almonds and green onion. Stir well to combine and incorporate the dressing.
Step 3: Crunch up the ramen noodles. Add to the salad and stir. Serve immediately. OR, if you prefer to make ahead - prepare everything except this last step. Reserve the noodles and add them to the salad right before serving it (unless you prefer soggy noodles . . .which are okay too).
