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

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 


DressingMix 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.
