Angie's Chinese Salad

This is a good pot luck dish, very delicious and refreshing. I knew it must be special when men ask for the recipe.


  • 8 chopped green onions
  • 1 chopped garlic
  • 1 medium head thinly sliced cabbage


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 ramen flavor packets (chicken and/or beef flavor)
  • Advertisement

  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 6 Tbsp. rice or white vinegar.
  • 1 Tbsp. dark sesame oil


  • crushed Ramen noodles from 2 packages (not flavor packet now)
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds,
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds. (or whatever you have)
  • 2 Tbsp. butter

Optional: If you wish, you can cook 1 whole chicken breast in a little water. Cool and cut into chunks and add to cabbage.


For Dressing: In a saucepan, heat all ingredients but sesame oil. When cool, add in sesame oil.

For Crunchies: Toast in dry skillet over low heat. Set aside to cool.

Toss vegetables together in a large bowl. Pour and mix dressing over cabbage mix about 1/2 hour before serving and add Crunchies just before serving.

Leftovers, if you have any, taste great, but the noodles may be a little softer.

Servings: 6
Time:20 Minutes Preparation Time
5 Minutes Cooking Time

Source: Culled from many Chinese Cabbage and Ramen recipes. I finally was satisfied with this combination.

This sounds so good! Do you use regular cabbage or bok choy (Chinese cabbage)?

I bet that would be good with either cabbage, and probably even good hot!
