Cabbage Salad Vinaigrette With Crunchy Noodles

Total Time
2hrs 15mins
Prep 15 mins

A staple at potlucks once I started bringing it. Very different from the usual cabbage salads. From my friend Maribeth who got me hooked. Try it! Cook Time is chilling time and to save time I always buy the packaged cabbage mix.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together the vegetables, (1st 5 ingredients) in a large serving bowl.
  2. Combine vinegar, oil, sugar, pepper and the seasoning packet from the noodles together in a separate bowl.
  3. Mix together with the vegetables and refrigerate 2 hours.
  4. Right before serving, break the dry noodles up into pieces and add to the salad along with the almonds and seeds.
  5. Serve immediately.

This was great--quick and easy to make and a bonus of less than 100 calories. The color and texture were beautiful. Everyone loved it. Only change was that the bag of cabbage mix had a bit more than the 4 ½ cups called for so I threw the extra in too. I cut up my grilled chicken and mixed it together on my plate, which tasted wonderful--so you could add chicken to the recipe for a change.

This is a great recipe. I did make alot of changes due to not having quite all the ingredients. I subbed frozen corn and sugar snap peas,left out mushrooms as DH doesnt like and used chopped carrots. I also used oriental flavored ramen noodles and did as another person suggested and used rice vinegar. I also decided to use a sugar substitute instead of sugar. I also used chopped peanuts instead of almonds and sesame seeds. This is a very versatile recipe as with all the changes it has a great flavor, I WILL be making this again. Thank you for this recipe.

I love this salad and there are so many slight variations you can make. My husband doesn't eat peas or mushrooms so I left them out but added shredded carrots. I also used rice wine vinegar instead of the tarragon vinegar. The noodles are nice toasted as well (toast on cookie sheet with almonds). Great summer salad for picnics etc!
