Cabbage and Ramen Noodle Vinaigrette Slaw

May 18, 2012

Cole slaw is one of the salads that my handsome half will eat that actually contains greens. This slaw recipe is different from the usual mayonaise based slaws. It has an Asian twist and an amazing taste.  The fact that it incorporates ramen noodles may evoke feelings of nostalgia among those who ate ramen noodles during the “salad days” of college. But, trust me, this salad is MUCH better than anything the instant ramen noodle cups EVER offered. In fact, whenever I serve this in a buffet, there is nothing left – and I mean nothing!

Cabbage and Ramen Noodle Vinaigrette Slaw 

Prepare the cabbage:

4 TBSP sesame seed

1 cup of sliced or slivered almonds

4 green onions – chopped

1 head of green cabbage, cored and coarsely chopped

2 packages of chicken flavored Ramen noodles

Mix the sesame seeds and almonds together, place on a cookie sheet and toast in a 350 degree oven for about 8 – 10 minutes (don’t let them get too brown). Remove from oven and let cool. Separate the noodles from the seasoning packets.  Set the seasoning packets aside.  Crunch the ramen noodles slightly and in a large salad or mixing bowl, toss together the noodles, cabbage, green onions and toasted sesame seeds and almonds Prepare the dressing and pour over the top and mix all together when ready to serve.

Dressing:

4 TBSP sugar

1 TBSP of black pepper

½ cup of sesame seed oil

½ cup of vegetable oil

6 TBSP red wine vinegar

2 packets of chicken flavored Ramen seasoning (out of the pack of noodles).

In a medium sized bowl, mix all of the dressing ingredients together and pour over the cabbage mixture.  Mix/toss well and serve.
