Chinese Chicken Salad ~ Easy, Summer Recipe

Every time I make this recipe, I get the song by the Bare naked Ladies called One Week stuck in my head!  Do you remember that song?  Hopefully I got it stuck in your head too so I am not all alone singing it!

This salad recipe is one my mother in law has been making for years and is so easy, tasty and perfect for a hot summer day when you don’t feel like using the oven!  Great alone or served as a side dish.

Recipe:

1 head of cabbage shredded

2 cups diced or shredded cooked chicken

2 oz slivered almonds

1 pkg ramen noodles (chicken flavor) crushed up, uncooked with flavor packet set aside

2 green onions sliced finely

Dressing:

1 flavor packet from ramen noodles

1 Tbsp sugar

1/2 cup canola oil

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

3 Tbsp white vinegar

Combine the ingredients for the salad in a very large bowl and set aside.

Meanwhile, mix your dressing ingredients in a small bowl, making sure it is stirred up well.

Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat evenly.  I like to serve right away, so the ramen noodles are still crunchy.  This is just a matter of personal taste.  I have found that some people prefer the noodles when they have set for a while in the fridge and softened up.  Try it both ways and see what your family prefers!
