Use any combination of nuts and seeds. This salad would also be good with sliced bell pepper or shiitake mushrooms. Serve as an accompaniment to pepper steak or pork chops glazed with hoisin sauce. Look for the wheat noodles labeled as plain for this salad.
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
2 tablespoons unsalted sunflower seed kernels
1 (8-ounce) package Chinese noodles, crumbled (such as ka-me)
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1/3 cup less-sodium beef broth
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup chopped green onions
1 (10-ounce) package angel hair slaw
How to Make It
Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add almonds, sunflower seed kernels, and noodles to pan; cook 3 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring frequently.
Combine vinegar, broth, sugar, oil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Combine toasted noodle mixture, green onions, and slaw in a large bowl. Add vinegar mixture, tossing well to combine. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
i really liked the dressing for this salad...the beef broth makes it lighter than most asian salads, plus there is no sesame oil. i couldn't find the noodles specified, so i substituted with a hot water-cooking style ramen.
The sauce was OK but there wasn't enough of it. The noodles were rubbery & gummy and probably should have been cooked first. Toasting them and the seeds/nuts did not enhance flavor at all. Will not make again. Blech.
I loved this salad. I used sesame oil instead of canola oil. I also let it sit for 30 minutes so the favors would blend. I thought it was a refreshing change of pace for a salad and was pleased it was much lighter than the usual ramen noodle salad. I will definitely make this again.
Wonderful if revised. As the gals above mention. Replace white vinegar with Rice Wine Vinegar (my favorite vinegar). Replace sugar with Honey, beef broth (no) chicken broth (yes), sesame oil & an avocado lemon oil(from Pacific Culinary) intead of canola (YUK), plus a splash tempura dipping sauce instead of the salt. A few raisen are nice too. the cabbage is a must.
