Asian Crunch Salad

This is one of the best salads you will ever have.  Okay, at least that is my opinion.  I tried this salad like about 6 years ago and it is a regular in our house.  Every summer it must be made at least once.  Why haven't I posted it yet?  I have no idea.  Maybe I just took it for granted.  Who knows.  I changed it up a bit here and I am happy I did because it went really nicely with some fresh lettuce. (It is usually made with regular cabbage and no lettuce).

Ramen noodles are one of my food vices- I must admit.

Asian Crunch Salad

1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1 flavor packet from Ramen noodles (I like Oriental flavor and chicken flavor)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil

2 cup lettuce greens
1 head of savoy cabbage or any other cabbage works well or 1 pkg. cole slaw mix
1/2 cup toasted almonds, chopped
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 c. green onions
1 pkg. dry Top Ramen noodles, crushed and toasted

This salad needs to be put together at the last minute to make sure that everything is crunchy. Toss the salad ingredients first and then toss with the dressing. Serve immediately.

Hi Lori, we love salads like this and probably make them a couple of times a month over the summer. Enjoy your holiday weekend;-)
