This was a pleasant version of Asian Slaw. I did notice a problem in the recipe so for that reason my rating is not 5 star. As written the ingredient list only calls for 1/2 CUP of cabbage. I didn't think that was correct for a salad to serve 6 so increased it to 1/2 a head of cabbage. I also used the seasoning pkt from the ramen in the dressing mixture. I really enjoyed the addition of the sesame seeds. The salad is mild in flavor & crunchy when first served. It wasn't as big of a hit the next day. Everything was oily & limp so it is definitely not a make ahead salad. This type of salad is meant to be served freshly made anyway to be at it's best. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
