This is a very light, tasty and satisfying salad using cabbage and instant noodles. It's a great side dish for a Chinese meal.
This was wonderful! I was looking for my mom's recipe online, and this is very close! Her recipe had some slight differences though, that I think make it better. I used 3/4 bag of shredded cabbage to save time, 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds + 1/4 cup toasted sunflower seeds (sunflower seeds really add wonderful flavor!), 1/8 cup corn or sunflower oil instead of vegetable oil, 3 Tbl. rice wine vinegar + 3 Tbl. sugar (plus seasoning packet). Wonderful! Thanks for the recipe! - 14 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
A really easy to make side dish. I actually roast the almonds and the ramen noodles with a bit of sesame seeds in the oven til slightly brown before adding to the cabbage and it tastes even better!! - 15 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
The original recipt itself was good -- I doctored it adding chopped green/red bell peppers and chicken (if you want meat...) and it was awesome. Also added garlic, and used a red wine vinegar dressing instead of the oil/vinegar combo. - 17 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
