Was looking for a quick light dinner and This turned out AWESOME ! ...even if I did forget the Mayo :) I found a great recipe to make Hoisen sauce (which I did not have) ! Topped with some toasted Chow Mein Noodles.<br/>Hubby and I ate the whole thing as a Dinner Salad ! Thanks so much ! <br/>Homemade Hoisen Sauce:<br/>4TBSP Soy Sauce (Light), 2TBSP Peanut Butter(I used chunky lite),1TBSP Honey,1/8tsp Garlic powder,2TBSP Sesame Oil,20 drops Chinese Hot Sauce,1/8tsp black pepper - Mix well - will take a bit - but it works !
I chose this recipe as I didn't have ramen noodles and didn't think they were available in Greece. I had to double the dressing (didn't measure the cabbage, but had half a cabbage left over after making another dish, and the dressing didn't seem to moisten all the salad.) The only very slight change I made was to reduce the amount of sugar to 1 tsp. total, and not to double the sesame seeds. The result was fantastic - my family was licking the plate! Because of the large amount of cabbage, there is a small bowl of salad leftover, and I will try it with noodles tomorrow (my daughter managed to find a variety of them in a shop which specializes in foreign items. We'll definitely make this again many times.

I want to thank everyone who has made a recipe I've posted. I know your time is valuable, and it's a leap of faith to try a recipe that has zero or very few reviews. I really do appreciate it. I'm addicted to cookbooks. I love buying them, I love borrowing them from the library, I love receiving them as presents. I love to cook (hate the messy dishes, however), but I don't cook very often. I'm mostly a weekend cook. I'm a library assistant at an elementary school. I'm a big fan of children's literature. I'm single and I don't have children, but I do have kitten babies that I adore like nothing else in this world.
