I was thrilled with the discovery of a large, crisp nappa cabbage in our box this week as I’ve been itching to make this recipe. Any suggestions on what we could replace the “Mr. Noodle” noodles with would be welcome. I’m ashamed to admit I consumed far more than my share of these in my university days. There must be a better alternative out there! Despite all this, it really is super tasty! Enjoy!
1 large nappa cabbage, thinly sliced
1 bunch green onions, chopped
¼ cup butter or margarine (or less)
2 pkg Mr. Noodle noodles, broken up
(discard the seasoning)
1 cup sliced almonds
2 T. sesame seeds
½ cup white sugar
¾ cup peanut oil
2 T. soya sauce
½ cup vinegar
- Toss sliced cabbage and green onions in a large bowl.
- Saute the noodles, almonds and sesame seeds in the butter until lightly browned.
- Combine sugar, peanut oil, soya sauce and vinegar in a small sauce pan. Boil for 1 minute then let cool.
- Add dressing and noodle mixture to salad just before serving.
