Chinese Cabbage Salad

This is one of my favorite salads ever! It's always the one that I take to potlucks and family parties. Such a great twist on all the healthy stuff :-) Love it! So when I heard everyone talking about corned beef and cabbage on the news this morning for St Patty's Day, I thought that I'd do my own favorite version of cabbage to share! I hope you all enjoy!

Chinese Cabbage Salad

1 head of cabbage, shredded or sliced fine
2 pkgs chicken flavored ramen noodles, crushed(reserve seasoning for dressing)
1 cup salted sunflower seeds
3 green onions, chopped
10 mini carrots, chopped

1 cup vegetable oil
4 Tbsp. rice vinegar
4 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 pkgs reserved ramen noodle seasoning

Place the cabbage, carrots, onions, sunflower seeds and crushed ramen noodles in a large serving bowl. Mix well. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients and pour over salad mixture. Refrigerate several hours before serving.

Happy Cooking


  1. I made this salad this morning. I didn't have the rice vinegar so I used white wine v. It turned out really yummy. What is the diff? Also I added chicken chunks in mine and made it a meal. Thanks for sharing your recipes!

  2. I also like to add chicken sometimes. Rice vinegar is not quite as tart as white vinegar. I also like it because it is seasoned but you should be able to use white vinegar and be fine :-) I'm glad you're enjoying the recipes Penny!

  3. ya ya I was just going to ask about the rice vinegar, when your reply popped up! Can you get that at the grocery store?

  4. you can get the rice vinegar at the store. I really like it's mild flavor!
