Napa Cabbage Salad w/ Chicken $5.90

About 30 years ago my Aunt made this salad and brought it to a party.  It didn't have any chicken in it, and it wa sn't nearly as healthy as I've attempted to make this one because it had twice the dressing and 3 times the crunchies.  Never the less, this has become a favorite of the grownups for some time, and I share it with you today.

Napa Salad

1 head Napa Cabbage - approx 1 1/2 to 2 lbs$2.29
5 green onions (or red onions if preferred).40

2 packages Ramen Noodles - crushed - toss the sauce mix in the trash..98
1/2 cup butter or margarine.18
1/2 cup slivered almonds.60
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds.25
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (the nuts, no shells).35

1/2 cup Canola Oil.30
1/2 cup sugar.25
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce.15
1/2 cup white vinegar.15

Melt butter in frying pan, add remaining ingredients for "crunchies", then saute together until everything is lightly browned.

Mix dressing in some sort of container - pint jar with lid works great, but an open bowl will suffice.

Cut napa into smaller than bite size pieces and onion into tiny shreds. 

Combine all three parts, along with 4 servings of chicken breast, prepared as you wish.  Mix well, allow to stand for about five minutes, and serve.  Do not mix more than 45 minutes in advance as crunchies become soggies, and that's gross!.
