Quick & Easy Asian-Inspired Ramen Cabbage Salad Recipe Is a Family Fan Favorite

This Asian-inspired cabbage salad was introduced to me years ago by my sister-in-law, and it has been a family favorite for about 20 years now. In fact, my adult daughter asked me to make it this past week while she was back home for a visit.

Here is your shopping list for this family favorite cabbage ramen salad recipe: green cabbage, slivered almonds, green onions, a package of chicken ramen, cooking oil, white wine vinegar and sweetener of choice. When we need this crunchy cabbage salad to be a full meal we add cooked chopped or shredded chicken for a complete dinner.

Serve this ramen cabbage salad as a side dish with your favorite protein, or add the protein to the salad. We like chicken, but shrimp would also be delicious! I served mine with my five-ingredient juicy flank steak recipe.
