Chinese Salad {Hold the Chicken}

Hi everyone!  You may not know this about me, but I'm not a huge meat fan.  My mom has made this salad plenty of times with chicken, but she usually leaves it out for me :)  So, you can have your typical Chinese Chicken Salad by adding some sliced cooked chicken, or not...  


1. medium head cabbage chopped
2. three green onions chopped
3. 1 green pepper diced
4. two packages ramen noodles broken up
5. 1 cup cashews halves or pieces
6. three to four chicken breasts (optional)

Dressing ingredients:

1. half cup oil
2. five tablespoons white vinegar
3. one teaspoon salt
4. four teaspoons sugar
5. one teaspoon pepper


Mix all vegetables, add noodles and cashews, and toss with dressing before serving.  

It is super yummy and I really love it!  Here's on more pic:

There you have it!  A simple yummy salad for Summer.


  1. Oh this looks so fantastic! I've got to make this... such a great summer salad idea.

  2. i love this salad and make mine without meat also. I usually use sliced Almonds but will surely try the cashews!

  3. That's my favourite salad and I always have it without meat. I've never had it with cashews though, so I will try that for sure!

  13. I seriously love this salad, but it reminds me of that Master Chef audition where some girl made it & Chef Ramsay was mad at the thought of eating raw ramen noodles. Haha. Thanks for sharing at Sweet & Savory Saturdays #19!
