Chinese Salad

I thought for sure I had posted this salad before because it's one of my favorites. Anytime that I'm serving Asian food, I always serve this with it. It's very simple to make and has been a hit when I've taken it to potlucks. Also, if you want to make it a whole meal in itself, you can add chicken to the salad. This is from my food idol, Paula Deen.


  • 1 head Napa or bok choy cabbage (I use a bag of cole slaw)
  • 3 green onions
  • 1 (3-ounce) package ramen noodles with seasoning pack (I like either Chicken or Oriental flavors)
  • 1 (6-ounce) package slivered almonds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the broiler.

Tear the cabbage and slice the onions, and place in a large salad bowl. Crumble the noodles into a broiler pan, add the almonds, sesame seeds, and broil for 2 minutes, being careful not to scorch the sesame seeds. In a jar with a tight lid, combine the oil, sugar, vinegar, and salt with the contents of the seasoning pack. Cover the jar and shake well to blend the dressing. Pour the dressing over the salad, add the toasted sesame and almond, and toss to combine.

Lindsay- you'll have to get after Joe about that. He called it Snarful and then his dad called it Sparkle, which then made Chad want to call it Carbunkle. :)

Lisa- I love this salad. I make it at least twice a month. It's the easiest and yummiest salad to make.
