Napa Cabbage Noodle Salad Recipe


1 large head napa cabbage, shredded
1/2 cup olive oil
1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles, crushed
1/2 cup sesame seeds
3 ounces blanched slivered almonds
1 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2/3 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
6 tablespoons white wine vinegar


Place the cabbage in a large bowl, cover, and place in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the ramen noodles, sesame seeds, almonds until lightly browned; set aside to cool.

Prepare the dressing by mixing the canola oil, soy sauce, sugar, balsamic and white vinegars in a blender until smooth.

About 30 minutes before serving, toss the dressing and cabbage mixture together; chill. Just before serving, toss the noodle mixture with the cabbage mixture.
