- 1 bunch green onion
- 3⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 cup cider vinegar
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- Saute in butter, sesame seeds and noodles (broken apart).
- Stir until browned.
- Set aside.
- Slice cabbage thinly and onion into large bowl.
- Add sesame seed-noodle mixture and almonds.
- Mix together.
- Combine dressing ingredients and pour over cabbage mixture.
I used half a head of regular cabbage that I had hanging around. Otherwise, I stuck to the original recipe. It was a big hit. I was nervous about the amount of sugar, but it wasn't over-powering. This type of recipe is really my "thing", but the rest of the family was as enthusiastic as I was about it. We all had several helpings, even DD, who hates cabbage! Thanks, Sly Girl!!
This salad is WONDERFUL !!! LOVE IT !!! I really like the fried noodle and sesame seed mixture , and the dressing has the best flavor . I can see this with some chicken or maybe even pork or steak added for a nice summer MEAL? THIS IS GOOOOOD!!
This is great. I used 2 green onions and chicken ramen. I used canola for the oil in the dressing. Excellent salad. Will be using this recipe again.
