Chinese Salad

This one is very simple, but very good. The dressing is lite....but the crunchies put the salad over the top. I've had many different versions, but this one is our favorite.

If we have it by itself, I usually chop up some grilled chicken or bake some chicken tenderloins, chop them up and throw them in. Leftovers are not good....the crunchies lose their crunch.

Chinese Salad

1 pkg shredded cabbage
1-3oz pkg ramen noodles
6 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted
1/2 cup blanched slivered almonds
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/8 cup white sugar

Crush noodles, place them in a medium skillet and brown in butter over medium heat. Add almonds and sesame seeds. Stir often to prevent burning. Add seasoning mix from noodles and cool. Toss in a large bowl with cabbage and onions.

Prepare the dressing by whisking together the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and sugar. Pour over salad, toss and serve.
