Chinese Noodle Salad

I am sure this is a familiar recipe to most people.

  • 1 lg head napa cabbage, chopped

  • 5 green onion, chopped (use only the tops)

  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked

  • 1 pkg ramen noodles, broken into small pieces, don’t use the seasoning packs

  • 1 sm pkg slivered almonds

  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds, lightly roasted

Mix everything but the noodles together.


  • 1 cup oil

  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup vinegar


Add to cabbage mixture and refrigerate. Add noodles just before serving.

I like to chop the chicken breast for this salad instead of just shredding it. For some reason I just like the smaller pieces of chicken.


This time I added roasted soy nuts. They added a really nice crunch and flavor.


Also I used just half of the dressing which was really nice. You could taste more of the other ingredients and not just dressing. Plus I just didn’t want to add that much sugar to the salad. Not that I am anti-sugar, but I think I could stand to cut a little sugar out of my diet and be just fine…or maybe even more fine. You know what I mean?!?

And I totally spaced adding the raman noodles before eating…and didn’t really miss them.
