Chinese Chicken Salad

I have had quite a few versions of this salad and have never been disappointed!  It makes me feel really healthy for some reason!  It would probably also be very good with diced celery, water chestnuts, sunflower seeds, or bell peppers

Chinese Chicken Salad

2 bags shredded cabbage
1 eight oz. pkg slivered (or sliced) almonds*
2 pkgs. Ramen Roodles, broken (oriental or chicken flavor)
1 bunch green onions sliced (white and green parts)
3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
4 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds (optional)


1c. vegetable or canola oil
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1tsp. pepper
3/4 c. rice vinegar
1 flavor packet from ramen noodles

Mix all ingredients together to dressing and refrigerate (the longer the better, 24 hours if you have the time).  Toss salad ingredients togehter and drizzle dressing over the top.  I have found that there is too much dressing, and the salad gets drowned if you used it all, so use a little bit at a time.

*Optional: Put almonds in saute pan with 3 Tbsp sugar and stir until sugar melts and coats nuts to a golden brown.
