Crunchy Asian Salad

Crunchy Asian Salad (1)

Looking for a great salad to serve on the side at a BBQ?  This is it!  

This salad takes very little time to throw together and is a favorite of all.   I love the crunch of the ramen noodles and the flavor of the dressing is the best!  Don’t judge this salad by the picture!  I made this for a big BBQ that we went to this week and wasn’t able to take a decent picture.  It was very tasty, none the less.  It makes quite a bit so if you are making it for just your family, I would suggest cutting it in half.

SALAD

3 packages Ramen noodles – Oriental flavor

1/2 cup sliced, blanched or slivered almonds

1/4 – 1/3 cup sesame seeds

Crunch noodles while still in the package.  Toast crunched noodles and almonds in a dry fry pan until slightly brown.  Add sesame seeds.  Watch VERY CAREFULLY – the seeds burn very quickly!!!

Remove from heat.  Add 1/2  of the flavor packets from the Ramen.

Crunchy Asian Salad (6)

1 head of cabbage, shredded or 2 bags of cole slaw  – I like using the cole slaw package because it is easy and it is pretty!

1/2 bunch green onions, finely chopped 

Mix cabbage and green onions.
