ASIAN CHICKEN SALAD

This crunchy Ramen noodle salad is the salad I had at my bridal shower. Ever since then it has held a special place in my taste buds. This makes a lot so it’s one of the best salads for a crowd.

SALAD INGREDIENTS

  • BUTTER – the crunchy ingredients are cooked in a little butter to get them a light golden brown color.
  • RAMEN NOODLES – Discard the seasoning packet and just use the crunchy noodles broken into smaller pieces. The uncooked ramen noodles give the salad great crunch and the toasted noodles give it a nutty flavor.
  • SESAME SEEDS – add some flavor.
  • CABBAGE – there are different types of cabbage but I like to use green cabbage. You can add red cabbage for color if you want. You could even use a coleslaw mix in a pinch.
  • SLIVERED ALMONDS
  • GREEN ONIONS – These add onion flavor without being too overpowering.

DRESSING INGREDIENTS

  • OIL – I like to use a neutral flavored oil like vegetable oil or canola. Olive oil can be used too.
  • WHITE VINEGAR – you could use apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar as some good options as a substitute.
  • SOY SAUCE
  • SESAME OIL – this gives the dressing a nutty flavor.
  • SUGAR – makes this a sweet dressing to balance out the tang of the vinegar.
