Chinese Chicken Salad - Ramen Style

It's planting season here and my personal in-house farmer friend has got his garden on!  Us rookies admitted that we completely over planted last year and definitely learned our lesson.  So, we discussed this year's selections and he mapped out his seedlings to get started.

Last year we definitely realized that in order to achieve our cases of dill pickles that my husband is so great at, we need much, much, much more fresh dill to be planted.  There are so many people that make dill pickles here, I swear the dill is going to be sold on the black market.

Good thing our fresh produce is right around the corner, because we cannot get enough of this Chinese chicken salad.

Oriental Cole Slaw with Ramen Noodles (a.k.a. Chinese Chicken Salad)

1 bag shredded mixed cabbage with shredded carrots
2-3 green onions, chopped 
1 package chicken flavored ramen noodles, crushed
2 ounces slivered almonds
3 Tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)
2-3 cooked chicken breast, diced

1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons vinegar
1 package ramen seasoning (from the noodle package)
1/4 cup Best Foods Real Mayonnaise with Olive Oil

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Put crushed ramen noodles, slivered almonds and sesame seeds in a pie dish and bake 5-10 minutes, until ight brown.

Mix all dressing ingredients.

Combine cabbage mix, green onions and toasted noodles, almonds and sesame seeds.  Wait to toss with dressing until just ready to serve.
