“I tried this cabbage salad at a party and loved it so much I had to ask for the recipe. I love the crunch of the ramen noodles with the slivered almonds, and it has just a bit of sweetness to it. Most of the salad can be made in advance - just don't assemble it until you're ready to serve.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (3 ounce) package chicken-flavored ramen noodles
  • 1 -1 12 cup slivered almonds
  • 14 cup butter
  • 1 head cabbage (or 2 bags of pre-shredded cabbage)
  • 13 cup sugar
  • 12 cup oil (vegetable oil, but not olive)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 13 cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce


  1. Crush ramen while still in package (be careful of it bursting - you may want to put the package into a ziploc bag first).
  2. Melt butter in a saute pan, and saute almonds, ramen, and flavor packet on medium heat until the ramen is golden brown.
  3. Combine sugar, oil, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and soy sauce in a container until the sugar is dissolved and the ingredients are well-combined.
  4. Do not assemble salad until ready to eat - it doesn't store well once combined.
