Directions

Cabbage Mixture: Chop one head of Napa cabbage...slice it thin first and then chop. Mix with 1/2 red cabbage chopped and some freshly chopped spinach. Then chop 6-8 thinly sliced scallions, through the green part. Coarsely grate 2 medium carrots. Chop 1/3 cup fresh cilantro. Mix all together. Noodle mixture: Break up 2 bags of ramen noodles (oriental flavor) into little pieces. Place on a baking sheet with the following: 1-2 packages slivered or sliced almonds; 1/3 cup sesame seeds; 1/3 cup sunflower seeds. Drizzle 2 Tb. olive oil over mixture and toss together to cover all ingredients... you can use real butter, but that makes it a little too greasy. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown- start watching them at 15 minutes. Cool and put in an air tight container until ready to toss. Salad dressing: Mix the following together: 1 cup vegetable oil; 1/2 cup cider vinegar; 2 Tb soy sauce; 3/4 cup sugar; 1/2 tsp salt; 1/2 tsp pepper. Keep the cabbage mixture, noodle mixture and salad dressing separate until ready to toss. The good thing about this salad is that all of these can be made a day ahead. You can make this into a meal by adding chicken, either grilled or rotisserie, shrimp or steak.
