We had this at a football pic-nic and it was such a hit!  And so healthy!

Chinese Chicken Salad

  • 1 bag prepared cole slaw or 1/2 to 1
    head shredded cabbage
  • 2 bunches green onions, chopped
  • 2 packages Ramen oriental noodles
  • 2 chicken breast, fully cooked and
    chopped up in bite-size pieces (use left-over chicken from your Broiled Chicken
    recipe!)
  • 1 cup toasted almonds (I recommend toasting almond slivers from Trader Joe’s in a dry skillet over medium heat, shaking occasionally.  Toast until golden – oh the aroma!  These are one of my favorite snacks!)
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 small Tangerines (or “Cutie’s”), peeled and separated into individual pieces

Dressing:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2/3 cup vinegar
  • Seasoning packets from noodles

In a large bowl, mix together cole slaw, onions, noodles, chicken, almonds, sunflower seeds and tangerine pieces.  When ready to serve, mix dressing ingredients and pour over slaw mixture.  Definitely a crowd pleaser!
