what to do with our purple cabbage next year

This excellent side dish salad is full of wonderfully crisp cabbage (& vegetables). The ramen soup mix is the perfect flavoring.

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 3 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes

1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1 head cabbage, shredded
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 orange bell pepper, sliced
1 cup snow peas
6 green onions, thinly sliced
2 (3 oz.) pkg. Ramen noodles
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. pepper

Place sesame seeds and almonds on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high until lightly toasted and you can smell them toasting, about 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently during cooking. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine cabbage, peppers, snow peas, and green onions. Crush ramen noodles and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine oil, water (to taste), vinegar, sugar, and 1 seasoning packet. Discard remaining seasoning packet. Beat dressing with wire whisk until combined. Just before serving, toss crushed noodles, toasted almonds and sesame seeds with cabbage mixture. Pour dressing over salad and toss well. 10-12 servings
