I think many people have a variation of this recipe. This is the one my family enjoys. I like that you can use it as a main dish or make it meatless and use it as a side. If you happen to be grilling, add a few more chicken breasts to the grill, otherwise just boil the chicken. Dark meat chicken really works well with this salad but with all of my recipes, tweak to your own families’ preferences. 

Oriental Chicken Cabbage Salad

1 whole cooked chicken breast, shredded OR 2 - 5 oz. cans of white chicken meat
2 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
¼ c. slivered, toasted almonds
½ head cabbage, shredded fine
2 green onions, chopped
1 3 oz. package chicken-flavored Ramen noodles

Salad Dressing
1/2 package Ramen noodle seasoning mix
1 ½ tbsp. agave OR 3 tbsp. sugar
½ c. vegetable oil
3 tbsp. rice or wine vinegar
1 tsp. salt (optional)
½ tsp. white pepper OR ¼ tsp. black pepper

Combine the chicken with seeds, almonds, cabbage, onion and uncooked noodles which have been broken apart. Add the dressing, toss to blend. Cover, refrigerate until serving time. Serve cold. Yield 6 servings
