So, Chinese New Year is coming up…and I have been craving my moms Chinese ramen salad…it was finally made, and I am sharing with you! It is delicious, and I could probably eat the entire batch to myself. I will not admit how much I have already had so far…let’s just say it is something you need to make! Not sure where my mom really got this recipe, but it just ended up in our family cook book because it was one of her signature dishes.


Cabbage Salad

2 pkg. chicken flavored Top Ramen Noodles ( Do not cook ), break into small pieces

1 c. slivered almonds, toasted

1 T. butter ( to toast the almonds in )

1 medium head cabbage, finely shredded ( you can also get pre cut cabbage in the bags )

1 red pepper, thinly sliced ( I used 1/2 red, 1/2 orange )

2 T. sesame seeds

4-5 green onions, chopped fine

Toast almonds in butter. Combine the salad ingredients together and toss with dressing.


3/4 c. salad oil

3 T. sugar

1/2 c. cider vinegar

2 pkg. seasoning from Ramen noodles.

Salt and pepper, to taste

I put all of these ingredients in a mason jar, and then shake it all up.

You can also add chicken, if you want!


Let me know what you think when you try this recipe! Did you do anything differently that makes it better? If that’s the case, then you MUST share! :) Enjoy!
