Cabbage Salad

This time of year I get hungry for cabbage salad. My friend, Jeanne gave me this recipe several years ago and  it has become a favorite. When I serve it to guests I can usually expect to be asked for the recipe. 

I don't always make the salad exactly as written. The last time I threw in some peanuts since I had no other nuts - and it was still good. And I used some chives instead of the green onions. So use what you have!



Cabbage Salad

1/2 head of cabbage, cut finely
4 green onions, diced
1/2 green pepper, chopped
2 T. sesame seeds
1/2 cup almonds or pecans
2 T. sugar (or honey)
1/2 cup oil
1 T. vinegar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 pack Ramen noodles, crumbled

Mix together cabbage, onions, and pepper. Toast sesame seeds and nuts at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Cool. Mix sugar, oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and seasoning packet from the Ramen noodles. Mix all salad ingredients together two hours before serving. Save a few noodles out to sprinkle on top for garnish.

  3. Do the Ramen noodles soften during the two hours when the salad is sitting?
