Yum, this salad is very enjoyable and what a great way to use cabbage. I had some regular cabbage that needed to be used up and I'm so glad I picked this delicious salad. The toasted sesame seeds, almonds, and ramen added a nutty taste that enhanced it wonderfully. I had a serrano chili (needed to use it up) that gave it a slight edge. Thank you Cooks4_6 for sharing. Made it for Photo Tag.

I made this thinking it was going to taste funny because I could not find chinese cabbage in any of my stores. Since I couldnt not find it, I used coleslaw mix. Well... it was amazing and very filling. Will definitely make again!

Very good! I took it to a large family function and everyone enjoyed it. I used regular cabbage since I could not find the chinese cabbage. Very easy and very cheap to make.
