Chinese Chicken Salad

Nothing fancy here. But I just find that it hits the spot sometimes. And so easy to whip up quickly.

½ head cabbage, shredded
2-4 green onions, sliced
1 package Top Ramen noodles (uncooked and without seasoning), broken up
2 cups diced chicken
1/2 can mandarin oranges, drained

Combine all of the above just before serving. Then garnish with:
2 T. sesame seeds, toasted
4 T. slivered almonds, roasted

2 tablespoons sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
½ cup oil
½ teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon accent flavoring
½ package Ramen flavoring

Combine ingredients, shake well, and pour over salad.


  1. Try adding mandarin oranges to this. Some sweet against the savory.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion, Steph. I'm trying this for lunch tomorrow. Can't believe I haven't thought of this before.

  3. I absolutely love this salad. Love, love, love it.
