Everyone loved it. It's pretty easy and goes a long way. I used to make this type of salad without a recipe... I think it's a little better with the same amount of vinegar as oil.
I toast my almonds with some sugar or brown sugar in the pan... the sweetness goes well with this salad.
This is a great salad, for a quicker recipe - I buy the premade cole slaw mix and add the rest of the ingredients. It's best to make this a couple of hours ahead, so the salad has time to soften together. I make this for our annual luau and everyone loves it!
I prepared this salad for my ethnic eating club. The theme was Hawaiian. It was delicious and a great hit! The mixture of flavors was perfect as was the presentation. I used 3/4 of a head of red cabbage and a small yellow pepper. I didn't know whether to use red or green cabbage so chose red for the color. The yellow pepper seemed to go well with the red cabbage. I doubled the oil and cider vinegar for the dressing because it was said that there wasn't enough using the standard recipe. I used the 3 packets of soup mix that came with the ramon noodle soup which was fine even though I doubled the other incredients. I however did not use all the dressing in the salad and had about 1/3 left over. As was noted, this is a huge salad which can serve a lot of people! I would definitely make this again and have a feeling I will use this recipe a lot in the future.
this is great recipe, followed the recipe thoroughly and the result was superb. My friends I envited for my party enjoyed it and actually asked if they could take some home ( they don't have to fix their lunch for the next day). Well what can I say thanks for the idea - awesome salad/meal for summer. Love it Amelita
