Asian Cabbage Salad

"Quick and tasty salad I found when looking for ideas for a luau. Wonderful as is, but I am also going to try adding chicken breast pieces and peanuts for a delicious Chinese Chicken Salad. Adapted from a recipe I found on The only cooking is toasting the sesame seeds, almonds and ramen noodles."

    Wonderful! I served this at a mid day party and every one loved it! I would only suggest using more than one head of Napa cabbage. Excellent!

    I've made this before and was so happy to find the recipe again. This salad doesn't last long in our house. The flavors are addicting.

    Very light but a lot of flavor due to the sesame seed oil and toasted almonds! The only thing I would change next time is to omit one package of ramen noodles. I thought 2 packages was overpowering. I also added some chopped cilantro.


I live in the San Francisco area and love it here. I discovered Recipezaar (then Kitchen) in 2001 and have been so happy to have my favorite recipes stored safely here. I am mother to 7 and grandmother to 7. I love to knit, smock, sew, etc., but my favorite hobby of the moment is traditional rug hooking. This is a sample of what I do.? It's called "November".? I dyed most of the wool myself. It is made from wool flannel, cut into strips a little less than 1/4" and then worked into a linen backing. This is my 3rd rug.
