Chinese Salad - Adapted from Paula Deen recipe

Everyone loves this salad!  The only change I made to Paula's original recipe was discarding the seasoning packet that comes with Ramen noodles and making my own spice mixture.  Another great dish to take to a picnic or party.

Chinese Salad (adapted from Paula Deen Recipe)


  • 1 head Napa or bok choy cabbage
  • 3 green onions
  • 1 (3-ounce) package ramen noodles (I don't use the seasoning pack, contains powdered dried chicken)
  • 1 (6-ounce) package slivered almonds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • (salt,garlic powder,onion powder, celery salt/seed,turmeric) make own mix out of these spices 
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat the broiler.
Tear the cabbage and slice the onions, and place in a large salad bowl. Crumble the noodles into a broiler pan, add the almonds, sesame seeds, and broil for 2 minutes, being careful not to scorch the sesame seeds. In a jar with a tight lid, combine the oil, sugar,vinegar, and seasoning mix. Cover the jar and shake well to blend the dressing. Pour the dressing over the salad, add the toasted sesame and almond, and toss to combine.


  1. We make a similar salad, only we get some udon ramen noodles that have a vegan seasoning packet with it and we don't broil it. This one looks just as good!

  2. I'll have to give that version a try. Thanks for sharing!!
