Chinese Cabbage Salad

Recipe by Cook4theFamily

This is different because the noodles and nuts are roasted in butter. Quite a different taste!

Excellent salad! I made this recipe for a church pot luck dinner on Sunday. I used regular cabbage instead of the recommended Napa Cabbage. Everyone raved over the freshness of the salad. Will definitely make this again. Made for PAC Spring 2011.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 head napa cabbage (regular cabbage, too, will work, ~3 lbs) or 1 head bok choy (regular cabbage, too, will work, ~3 lbs)

  • Noodle Mix

  • 2 (3 ounce) packages ramen noodles (not cooked and don't use seasoning mix)
