Equipment

  • stove

Ingredients

  • 1 medium Napa cabbage
  • 1 bunch of green onions optional, finely chopped
  • 1 cup slivered almonds toasted
  • 3 ounce package of ramen noodles
  • ¼ cup of dried cherries or blueberries optional

FOR THE DRESSING

  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce

Instructions

  • Cut the bottom off of the cabbage and wash the leaves individually. Dry them and then slice into thin slivers (chiffonade). Cut in half if the strands are too wide.
  • Spread the almonds out on a large baking sheet with a rim and toast them in the oven. Watch them carefully, shaking the pan every 45 seconds to 1 minute to ensure that they brown evenly. When they are a light brown remove from the oven.
  • Crush the ramen noodle into small pieces on a large baking sheet and toast in the oven until they just begin to brown. Approximately 4 minutes.

To Make the Dressing

  • Whisk the ¼ cup rice vinegar, ½ cup olive oil, 1 tsp grated ginger, 2 tbsp soy sauce, and black pepper to taste until fully combined.
  • Put all of the ingredients to a LARGE bowl. Add the dressing and toss well.
