Ramen Cabbage Salad

Ramen Cabbage Salad
For Memorial Day this year, we decided to travel to Kansas City to visit Joel’s family. It’s so hard these days to travel 9 hours in the car so we really cherish the times that we are able to get back. We have a lot of fun and exciting things planned for the weekend including an awesome BBQ with lots of family.

This Ramen Cabbage Salad is always a huge hit with my family and I’m sure would be with just about anybody. We make it for almost every spring and summer gathering because its unique and not the typical side dish. It’s pretty simple to throw together but doesn’t keep well so make sure to mix it up right before serving. You most likely won’t have to worry about leftovers.

Ramen Cabbage Salad

6 green onions, whites only
1 medium cabbage, thinly shredded or a bag of pre-shredded cabbage
2 packages Oriental Ramen, crunched
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup slivered almonds

Dressing:
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/2 cup sugar

1. Thoroughly combine all dressing ingredients and refrigerate.

2. Toast sunflower seeds and almonds in a dry pan until you can smell them. Set aside then toast the crunched ramen (without the packets) in the same pan. Combine the nuts, ramen and the ramen packets.

3. Just before serving, combine the cabbage and onions with the dressing. Then mix in the toasted ingredients and enjoy.
