ORIENTAL SALAD


YOU WILL LOVE THIS!  I HAVE TWEAKED THE RECIPE OVER TIME.

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar 
1/4 cup vegetable oil 
1/2 cup sugar 
2 (3 ounce) packages chicken-flavored ramen noodles, noodles crushed 
1 (1 lb) bag coleslaw mix 

Directions:  

For the dressing, combine vinegar, vegetable oil, sugar and the two flavor packets from the ramen noodles, set aside.  

In a large bowl combine cole slaw mix and dressing, and let it sit in refrigerator for 2 hours.

I combine 3/4 cup almonds (can use cashews or peanuts) and ramen noodles, sautéing in a small amount of butter until almost brown.  Drain on paper towel and add to slaw mixture.  You can also add toasted sesame seeds is desired.  Add to slaw and serve! 

Note: I add a can of mandarin oranges to my slaw.

I also love to serve sliced grilled chicken breast atop the salad for a meal.It is also great with shrimp cooked in chili sauce.


Also... I need your help, friends.  Do any of you have an information on this porcelain?


IF YOU MISSED
See you soon,
Teresa

Teresa I love your variation of the Oriental Salad. I think the mandarin oranges add a fresh taste to it!
