Chinese Napa Cabbage Salad

27 Sep

As soon as I saw the Asian themed veggie pack was available from Bountiful Baskets, I was seriously hoping that Napa cabbage would be included.  I was craving Chinese Napa Cabbage Salad, and once I found out it was in there, I got the rest of the ingredients I needed ready.

What you need:

  • 2 (3 ounce) packages chicken flavored ramen noodles, crushed
  • 1 seasoning packet from the ramen noodles
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 Napa cabbage, shredded
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, chicken removed from the bone (optional)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/8 cup white sugar
How to make it:
Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium-low heat.  Melt butter and add crush noodles.  Cook until golden brown.  Add in toasted sesame seeds and 1 of the seasoning packets from the ramen noodles, stir thoroughly.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.
In a large bowl, add cabbage, green onion, chicken (if using) and the cooled noodle and sesame seed mixture and mix.  Set aside.  Mix together the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl.  Pour this over the cabbage mix and toss.  Serve immediately.

  1. More Bountiful Baskets for this week! « My Gems of Parenting - January 23, 2012

    […] A friend of mine was feeling overwhelmed with her extra Asian themed veggie pack, so asked if I wanted it and I decided to take it.  She already used some of the items, but still plenty left!  There is bok choy, Napa cabbage, celery, snow peas, green onions, garlic, ginger, and water chestnuts.  I’m think that I will use most of it to have as stir fry veggies with the Orange Chicken I am planning on making  at some point this week.  I will probably also make Chinese Napa Cabbage Salad.
