Whenever we have a potluck picnic to go to, I bring Grandma Marilyn’s Summer Cabbage Salad. It’s sort of a variation on cole slaw, but you don’t have to worry about mayonnaise getting warm. I almost always double the recipe. Grandma says the secret is to get the “crunchies” nice and brown. Enjoy!
Grandma’s Summer Cabbage Salad
1 bag of shredded cabbage
4 or 5 green onions sliced (I use less because we’re not crazy about raw onions)
Mix in a jar:
1/2 cup salad oil
2 TBSP. soy sauce
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
flavor packet from Ramen Oriental Noodle Soup
Shake often and then add to cabbage 1/2 hour before serving.
1/2 stick butter (Grandma only uses Land o’ Lakes. Just like Julia.)
2 TBSP. sesame seeds
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 package Ramen noodles (break up in the bag, but do it carefully so it doesn’t explode)
Saute until brown and then add to salad just before serving.
