Oriental Cabbage Salad

I thought I better get to recipes again. I made this favorite salad a week or so ago just before we headed to Texas. I have had many different types of Oriental Cole Slaw but this is my favorite. I don't usually add grilled chicken but I did this time. What a perfect summer dinner to enjoy with your favorite bread! This salad would be an excellent choice for your 4th of July gatherings. I usually toss just before serving so to keep the noodles/nuts crunchy!

Thank you Lori for this great recipe. We have been enjoying it for years!



Oriental Cabbage Salad

1 bag coleslaw
1 pkg Ramen noodles, crushed (disgard seasoning)
8 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup sunflower kernels
4 Tbsp sugar

Dressing:

8 Tbps seasoned rice vinegar
1 cup cooking oil
2 tsp seasoned salt

Place nuts and sugar in a pan. Stir over medium heat until sugar melts. Stir constantly until the nuts are "candied". Pour onto a plate and allow to cool.

Mix cabbage and onions. Just before serving, add nuts, noodles and dressing. Toss!

*The dressing makes a lot. You could just about add another bag of slaw to mixture.
