I love trying new salads. It wasn’t until recently that I’ve been discovering that there is life outside of just a “green salad”. This Japanese Chicken Salad is a unique and delicious. I’ve taken it to a couple of parties and everyone has loved it. My mom loves it best after a day or two, but I think it’s only good the day it’s made!
Japanese Chicken Salad
This Japanese Chicken Salad has been a quite a popular side dish for as long as I can remember. It's the perfect way to use a package of ramen noodles!
- 1/2 head cabbage sliced thin
- 4 green onions
- 2 tbsp. sesame seeds
- 1/2 c. slivered almonds
- 4 c. cooked chicken diced (optional)
- 1 pkg. chicken flavored ramen noodles
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 3 tbsp. white vinegar
- 1/2 c. vegetable oil
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1 pkg. ramen noodle seasoning
Toast sesame seeds and almonds in 350 F oven for 5-6 minutes. Watch carefully not to burn.
Mix together cabbage, onions and ramen noodles, refrigerate.
Combine all ingredients for dressing and coat salad along with sesame seeds and almonds just before serving.
