Jan's Napa Salad - Award Winning!






Chop and put in a large bowl to chill :


1 or 2 Heads of Napa Lettuce – torn into bite-size pieces


8 green onions sliced – including the green tops


1 package of dried cranberries (optional)



In a saucepan:


Melt butter and saute the Ramen noodles and sesame seeds over medium low heat until they are lightly browned. Set aside and cool.


1 stick butter


2 tsp sesame seeds


2 packages of Ramen Noodles (do NOT use seasoning, just the noodles)


1 small package of sliced almonds



Dressing: Mix in a shaker container or jar. Shake and pour over chilled salad immediately before serving . Most likely you will not need all of this for 1 head of cabbage . What seems like a lot will shrink down considerably . This salad does not keep well so plan to eat it all when you serve it or just add the dressing to individual servings.


1 cup vegetable oil


1 cup sugar


½ cup rice vinegar


4 tsp soy sauce



For 6 people or less – I only use 1 head of napa cabbage. I often add left over chicken or shredded rotisserie chicken if I’m making this a main meal and serve with crusty bread.



When my sons were little I doubled the topping.

This was given to me by a co-worker in 2000 and I changed it up to suit my family. I've won two recipe contests with this recipe. Kids LOVE it
