The atomic age had some terrifyingly bad foods come out of it. Dessert molds with lemon jell-o and canned mixed vegetables are proof of that, but this recipe stands the text of time, and is a nice alternative dinner if you don't want meat.
4 T butter
2 T sesame seeds
1/4 c slivered almonds
2 pkg instant ramen noodles, crumbled
1/2 c olive oil
3 T brown sugar
3 T red wine vinegar
1 T soy sauce
1 napa cabbage, sliced and refrigerated
Melt butter in a skillet and toast the sesame seeds, slivered almonds, and ramen noodles until brown. Remove from heat and add a packet of flavoring. I use the chicken ones. Set aside to cool.
Mix the olive oil, brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and second flavor packet together.
Toss the crunchy topping, dressing and cabbage together in a large bowl and serve immediately.
