Napa Cabbage Salad
1 head of napa cabbage finely sliced
1 bunch of green onions
1/4 pound of sliced pea pods
1 peeled and seeded cucumber sliced thin
8 thinly sliced radishes
1 small bunch of cilantro leaves
2 tbls of black sesame seeds
1 package top ramen noodles, broken into small bits
2 tbls honey
1/2 cup of salad oil
3 tbls of white balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tbls soy sauce
mix all ingredients for dressing together in a jar and shake, can be made ahead and refrigerated..
toss salad just before serving...
some of the items in the dressing, (not pictured is the soy sauce and black sesame seeds)
put all dressing ingredients in a jar and shake up......can be done ahead of time...
get out a great big bowl.....and slice up 1 head of napa cabbage...napa cabbage is curly and has a great texture...it is softer and milder than regular cabbage...
slice up 1 bunch of green onions thinly including tops...
peel, seed and slice 1 cucumber...
take off the ends and strings of pea pods and slice up...
take the leaves off a bunch of cilantro, time consuming...the stems are bitter...so leave them out...
slice up thinly the radishes.....
any flavor of top ramen will do, you will throw the seasoning away, only use the noodles..
toss all together with the dressing......
this is such a great salad. it would be great with shredded chicken on top....you can put any vegetable you have in this, as long as you have the basics of the napa cabbage, and onions and noodles...it make a big salad enough to share!
Cheers to Happy !!
