This is great for a light lunch. Double the recipe it is also good as a potluck dish. Always had rave reviews on this one

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 head cabbage, shredded
  • 12 cup cooked chicken breast
  • 1 bunch green onion, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
  • 12 cup almonds, toasted
  • 1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles, crushed
  • 12 cup celery, chopped
  • Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar
  • 12 cup vegetable oil

Directions

  1. Mix dressing ingredients in a small jar and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  2. Layer cabbage, celery, green onions and chicken; set aside.
  3. Add toasted sesame seeds and toasted almonds and top ramen noodles just before adding dressing.
  4. Toss and serve immediately for best flavor and "crunch" (although leftovers are a welcome lunch in my opinion).

This was really very good! I can see that when summer comes I will be making this quite often for light dinners. To make this more of a meal, I used two whole chicken breasts. I sautéd them with a tiny bit of oil and a few select spices the night before. I sliced them very thin and placed everything in a large zip-lock bag - Cabbage, Chicken, Spring Onions, Celery. I made the sauce the night before and when it was time for dinner I just put the rest of the ingredients in the zip-lock bag and shook it all up! Everything except the Ramen noodles - I don't generally like them, I substituted them when French Fried Onions. This recipe was easy, no mess to clean up, a healthy and delicious meal... what more could you ask for? Thank you for posting this recipe and joining the recipe Swap! :)

This is a great recipe. Hadn't thought of adding chicken before, but it makes a nice change of pace.
