This is a salad that my mother would make when I was growing up.  This is what I lovingly refer to as a “retro dish”.  I have updated it a bit from the original with the addition of sesame oil which gives the salad a more nutty flavor and using rice wine vinegar in place of regular vinegar.  This is great side dish with chicken teriyaki or salmon patties.

1 medium green cabbage coarsely shredded
1 bunch green onions sliced
½ cup dry roasted sliced almonds
3 tablespoons roasted sesame seeds
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3 tablespoons seasoned rice wine vinegar
1 package chicken Ramon noodle packet with seasoning packet

In a serving bowl mix together seasoning packet from Ramon with canola oil, sesame oil and vinegar until seasoning is dissolved.  Add in shredded cabbage and green onions, toss until coated with dressing.  Add in almonds, sesame seeds and fresh ground pepper to taste.  Crush Ramon noodles and add just before serving to the salad.

  1. […] Why buy bottled terriyaki sauce when you can make your own? This is a basic recipe and can easily be modified by omitting the sesame oil. You can also add pineapple juice (1/8 cup) to give it a different spin. This recipe can be used with skinless, boneless chicken thighs, chicken breasts, or pork tenderloin. Allow the meat to marinate for at least 8 hours. I will usually prepare this in the morning and allow to marinate while I am at work. I recently tried this on a portabella mushroom for my sister who is a vegetarian. It turned out great. This is also great on salmon fillets. The salmon should only marinate for about a half hour. I often double this recipe because my it is so well loved at my house. This goes great with white rice and Asian Cabbage Salad […]

    I must have had 8 plates of this stuff. It is so light and perfect for a summer side dish.
