This is the best salad. Instead of iceberg lettuce use nappa cabbage. it is sweet and looks like a leaf lettuce.this recipe makes a very large salad. But you don't have to mix it all together. I just cut up the cabbage in small strips and make up the croutons and bag them separately and keep them in frig and take out what you need of each and fix yourself a salad.

How to Make Nappa Cabbage Salad


  1. IN a large bowl for the whole head of cabbage, cut cabbage up in small strips starting at top of cabbage.
  2. In a large skillet crumble romen noodles, one stick of butter cut up in chunks so it will melt easier, 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, and cup of pecans or almonds. Start browning on a medium heat stiring constantly until your noodles start looking a golden color. Remove them from heat and let cool
  3. in anothe skillet spray with some kind of cooking spray and start browning your chicken chunks. I know it says you can microwave the chicken but believe me the browning ofthe chicken makes it taste so much better.
  4. Now start building your salad. If you are makeing up the whole head don't add the croutons mix until your ready to serve. You can add any thing you want to this salad and use your own dressing
  5. Now if you cut up the whole head and don't want to make all of it up, just bag up the chopped cabbage in a gallon bag. bag up your noodles crunch mix in another bag. just take out what you need of each bag for single servings and make up your salad like you want to with the crilled chicken and tomatoe. onion is optional, So go for it and build your salad. its awesome,
  6. I dress my salad with balsalmic vinagar and a little ranch and salt and pepper. Like I said build your salad with what you want and I promise you you will not ever go back to iceberg lettuce.
