You asked for it: cabbage salad

Since you asked so nicely, here is the recipe for my Aunt Roberta's cabbage salad. She calls it a "slaw," but it's not like the cole slaw I'm used to, so I don't really think of it that way. So po-tay-to, po-tah-to, call it whatever you want.

Here's how to make it...

2 T butter
1 head cabbage, chopped
8 T slivered almonds (2/3 cup)
8 T sesame seeds
8 green onions, sliced
2 T Top Ramen Noodle Mix (Chicken or Oriental)

4 T sugar
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
6 T rice vinegar
1 cup salad oil
flavor packet from Ramen Noodles

  1. Brown almonds and seeds in butter.
  2. Mix dressing ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Mix cabbage and onions in a large bowl.
  4. Add almonds, seeds and noodles to cabbage and onions, then pour dressing over top.
You can also add slivered, cooked chicken.

We did take it to the potluck last night, and I think it was a hit, because we didn't bring much back home.

Thanks, Aunt Roberta!
