Cabbage Salad

11 04 2011

This is a salad that my husbands grandma would make almost every time we ate dinner or lunch at their house when we were dating. It was one of his favorite side dishes and she knew that. When we got married that was one of the recipes that he made sure he got from his grandma especially when we moved so far away from them. It is so simple to make. I have made it for many a pot lucks and people always want the recipe. I hope that you enjoy it as much as our family does.


Start by cutting a half a head of cabbage really fine. Sometimes when I am in a hurry I use a bag of shredded cabbage instead of chopping a head of cabbage. Then chop up 4 green onions. Take your sliced almonds and sesame seeds and toast them on a baking sheet in the oven.


Next take a bag of Ramen noodles and crush up the noodles. Pour the noodles over the salad making sure not to throw away the flavor packet. In another small bowl mix together the sugar, vinegar, oil, pepper, and Ramen flavor packet.  Just before serving add almonds and sesame seeds to the cabbage mixture and toss with the dressing. If you let the dressing sit on the salad for to long the Ramen noodles and almonds will become soft and not crunchy
