Oriental Cabbage Salad

Like a lot of college students, my sister and her roommates lived on ramen noodles. She found this recipe for a healthier variation. She was splurging by buying the nuts!
25+ years later, she still makes it, but experiments with different vinegars, oils, nuts, or ramen noodle flavors (she says the shrimp one is really good). She also adds raisins or apples or uses this as the bed to grilled fish.
You can make this vegetarian by using the veggie ramen flavor.
