Napa Cabbage Salad (even non-salad lovers would love!)



I am not a salad person.  But this salad?  I absolutely LOVE.  I got the recipe from my sister-in-law.  It’s so easy to make and so, so yummy!  Here’s the recipe, in case you’d want to try it yourself.  Be warned:  You’ll want to have it VERY often!


2 Napa cabbages, shredded

4 green onions, sliced


2 packages of ramen noodles, broken up into small pieces

1/3 cup melted butter

1/3 cup slivered almonds


2/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup white vinegar

2/3 cup olive oil

3 tbsp. soy sauce


  1. For the salad dressing:  In a sauce pan, in low heat, combine 2/3 cup sugar and 1/3 cup white vinegar.  Then turn off the heat and add 2/3 cup olive oil and 3 tablespoons of soy sauce.  Set aside to cool.
  2. For the crunchies:  Combine 1/3 cup melted butter with 1/3 cup slivered almonds, and noodles.  Spread evenly and brown on cookie sheet at 350F for 8-10 minutes.  Cool, set aside.
  3. Add shredded Napa cabbage to sliced onions; gently toss to combine. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
  4. Just before serving the salad, add the crunchies and the dressing; toss.  (You do not want to add the crunchies in until you’re about ready to serve, otherwise they might get a bit soggy.)


Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
