Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 5 mins
Other time 2 hrs
Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
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.

Ingredients

  • 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
