Hawaiian Cabbage Chicken Salad

We have a favorite Hawaiian restaurant we frequent for take-out.  Dinners favorites include Teriyaki Chicken and Beef, Korean BBQ Beef, Kalbi Beef and Spam Musubi.  The meals are served with macaroni salad and a cabbage salad.   The cabbage salad is similar to a cabbage salad our family grew up eating.  It's one of our all-time favorites and it's too good not to share.

Cabbage Chicken Salad
(We grew up calling it Chinese Noodle Salad)
I usually double the salad for our family since it's a favorite.

1 chicken breast
1/2 head shredded cabbage
2 chopped green onions
Combine in large bowl.

2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons slivered almonds
1 package ramen noodles, broken (throw away season packet)
Mix seeds almonds and noodles in a frying pan.  Heat and brown a bit.

Chicken, cabbage, onion and noodle mixture

1/4 cup water
1/4 cup oil
3 tablespoons rice vinegar (I use seasoned rice vinegar)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Mix dressing and pour over cabbage blend.  Make salad a few hours before serving.  It's also great the next day!

So easy and is great for a large group.  Enjoy!
