Oriental Cabbage Salad

*While in Indiana, I'm trying to make a few of our favorite things to share with family here ... this is a recipe that my mother-in-law made all the time ... it made my niece tear up when she said she hadn't had this since Grandma passed away*



Most people like this, even if it's based on cabbage. Just an absolute delicious salad for those summer bbqs!


Bag of coleslaw (or just plain cabbage, shredded, small to medium size head)
8 green onions, sliced thin
1/2 cup peanuts (or other nuts you like), toasted and cooled (used plain spanish peanuts)
1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted and cooled (skipped as I didn't have any)
2 pkgs ramen noodles, crushed
1/2 red pepper, chopped

Dressing:

4 tbs sugar. You can use a sugar substitute of choice if desired 
I used 3 packets of Stevia in the Raw and it was perfect!! I may do it this way from now on
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil (or oil of choice)
2 tsp salt (I've always used less)
6 tbs rice wine vinegar
*or, you can do like I sometimes do and just use the seasoning packet and omit the salt and pepper*

Place all veggies in a large mixing bowl.

Just before serving, mix in the seeds/nuts, crushed noodles and toss gently with the salad dressing. Serve.

*Feel free to not dress the complete salad. Serve up smaller bowl and replenish as needed (only because the leftovers will be soggy but still yummy!)

Looking forward to sharing at some of these GREAT PARTIES! Go check them out!
