8 cups shredded cabbage
1 or 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
3 green onions, thinly julienne sliced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup roasted slivered almonds
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 package instant ramen noodles, seasoning package removed & crushed
1/2 cup peanut or canola oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/3 cup vinegar
scant 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
optional: 1/2 teaspoon miso & 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
Using a mandoline or a sharp knife, slice the cabbage thinly into a large bowl. Add shredded chicken, green onions, cilantro, slivered almonds and sesame seeds.
Mix dressing well. Taste and adjust seasonings. Starting with about 1/3 cup of dressing, pour over cabbage salad and toss well. Add more dressing as needed. Garnish with a few green onion sprigs and cilantro leaves. Crunchy instant ramen noodles can be mixed into the salad or served on the side and sprinkled on top.
