We love salads. Even Addie loves them. But then again, what doesn't Addie love?! Besides, what's not to love about a salad in summertime? They're quick. They're easy. And generally you can get the bulk of the ingredients at the Farmer's Market. (I love to think I'm supporting our local farmers) So I'm always on the lookout for new salad recipes. Found one!
Chinese Chicken Salad
1 head Napa Chinese cabbage (cored and cut into thin strips)
1 bunch green onions, sliced into small pieces
2-4 grilled chicken breasts (chopped)
Layer cabbage, onions, and chicken breasts into 4 salad bowls and set aside.
Combine all items in saucepan and boil for one minute:
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup rice vinegar
3/4 cup peanut oil
2 tbl. soy sauce
In separate saucepan:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sliced almonds
2 packages broken ramen noodles (do not add seasoning)
Melt butter then sauté almonds and noodles until the mixture is lightly browned. Let cool. Sprinkle cooled topping on each salad and drizzle each with dressing.
