For the Salad:

  • 1 head Napa cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 package of ramen noodles, uncooked and crumbled (discard seasoning packet)
  • Optional: 1/2 cup mandarin orange segments for sweetness

For the Dressing:

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a dry skillet over medium heat, toast the slivered almonds and crumbled ramen noodles until golden brown and fragrant. Be careful to stir frequently to prevent burning. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a large salad bowl, combine the thinly sliced Napa cabbage, grated carrots, and chopped green onions. If using, add the mandarin orange segments.
  3. To make the dressing, in a small bowl or jar, whisk together the vegetable oil, apple cider vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, and sesame oil until the sugar is dissolved. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat evenly.
  5. Just before serving, sprinkle the toasted ramen noodles and almond slivers over the salad for crunch.
  6. Serve immediately to ensure the noodles and almonds retain their crisp texture.
