A store-bought sesame-ginger marinade saves time by serving as the dressing in this crunchy main-dish salad. Toast the noodles the same way you would toast nuts: Bake at 350° for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
5 cups shredded napa (Chinese) cabbage (about 1 large head)
2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
1 1/2 cups matchstick-cut carrots
1 cup diagonally cut snow peas
1/2 cup diagonally sliced green onions (about 5)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup sesame-ginger 30-minute marinade with mandarin orange juice (such as Lawry's)
1/4 cup uncooked Japanese curly noodles (chucka soba), crumbled and toasted
How to Make It
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Add marinade, tossing to coat. Cover and chill 2 hours. Add toasted curly noodles just before serving.
