This is an oriental flavoured salad with lots of crunch. Shredded cabbage is combined with spring onion, almonds, coriander and crushed instant noodles. The flavour in the dressing comes from the seasoning packet!
This was wonderful! I was looking for my mom's recipe online, and this is very close! Her recipe had some slight differences though, that I think make it better. I used 3/4 bag of shredded cabbage to save time, 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds + 1/4 cup toasted sunflower seeds (sunflower seeds really add wonderful flavor!), 1/8 cup corn or sunflower oil instead of vegetable oil, 3 Tbl. rice wine vinegar + 3 Tbl. sugar (plus seasoning packet). Wonderful! Thanks for the recipe! - 14 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A really easy to make side dish. I actually roast the almonds and the ramen noodles with a bit of sesame seeds in the oven til slightly brown before adding to the cabbage and it tastes even better!! - 15 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The original recipt itself was good -- I doctored it adding chopped green/red bell peppers and chicken (if you want meat...) and it was awesome. Also added garlic, and used a red wine vinegar dressing instead of the oil/vinegar combo. - 17 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
