Unlike most Chinese Cabbage Salad recipes, this one doesn't call for Ramen Noodles. If you like them in your salad, though, they can certainly be included. Taste the dressing as it's being prepared. You may want to add a bit more of something, depending on your taste.
- 5 cups shredded Chinese cabbage (napa)
- 1 1⁄2 cups frozen sweet peas, cooked, cooled
- 2 green onions, diagonally sliced
- 1 medium carrot, shredded
- 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise or 1⁄4 cup salad dressing
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground ginger
- In large bowl, combine first four ingredients.
- In small bowl, combine remaining ingredients and blend well.
- Just before serving, add dressing to salad; toss to mix and coat.
Was looking for a quick light dinner and This turned out AWESOME ! ...even if I did forget the Mayo :) I found a great recipe to make Hoisen sauce (which I did not have) ! Topped with some toasted Chow Mein Noodles.
Hubby and I ate the whole thing as a Dinner Salad ! Thanks so much !
Homemade Hoisen Sauce:
4TBSP Soy Sauce (Light), 2TBSP Peanut Butter(I used chunky lite),1TBSP Honey,1/8tsp Garlic powder,2TBSP Sesame Oil,20 drops Chinese Hot Sauce,1/8tsp black pepper - Mix well - will take a bit - but it works !
I chose this recipe as I didn't have ramen noodles and didn't think they were available in Greece. I had to double the dressing (didn't measure the cabbage, but had half a cabbage left over after making another dish, and the dressing didn't seem to moisten all the salad.) The only very slight change I made was to reduce the amount of sugar to 1 tsp. total, and not to double the sesame seeds. The result was fantastic - my family was licking the plate! Because of the large amount of cabbage, there is a small bowl of salad leftover, and I will try it with noodles tomorrow (my daughter managed to find a variety of them in a shop which specializes in foreign items. We'll definitely make this again many times.
Looking for a recipe to use my dad's crop of chinese cabbage and this one was simple and delicious. Everyone loved the dressing. I did add some bean sprouts to the vegetable ingredients. I used the leftovers the next day rolled in rice paper wrappers and they were also fresh and delicious.
