“A great-tasting healthy treat!! I read a similar recipe in the TFF, and changed it to suit my husband and myself!!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (12 ounce) bagsangel hair cabbage
  • 4 cups carrots, chopped
  • 2 cups celery, chopped
  • 1 cup radish, chopped
  • 2 (3 ounce) packages chicken-flavored ramen noodles, broken into pieces
  • 2 -16 ounces pinto beans, rinsed & drained
  • 2 (4 ounce) packages sunflower seeds, roasted & salted
  • 2 (4 ounce) packages almonds, slivered
  • 1 cup cashews (optional)
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped into small pieces (optional)
  • 1 cup cauliflower, broken into small pieces (optional)
  • Dressing
  • 1 13 cups virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup Splenda sugar substitute
  • 23 cup white vinegar
  • chicken seasoning, packets (from ramen noodles)


  1. Mix all ingredients in very large container.
  2. Dressing:
  3. Mix and pour over salad mix well.
  4. Pinto beans can be substituted with ANY canned bean. We like (black eyed peas) just rinse and drain well!
  5. I use a HUGE dollar store bowl with plastic lid, and shake to mix!
  6. This gets better every day as the ingredients "set".
  7. Use as a side dish -- or for a meal in itself! The beans are the protein, the splenda is diabetes-friendly -- it just doesn't get better than this! ENJOY.
