And another easy recipe.

Oriental coleslaw with or without chicken

Very easy, chop the following:

one cucumber
two stalks celery
one can water chesnuts
two cloves of garlic
one tablespoon of ginger
two bunches scallions (green onions)

Add small package frozen peas
and a package of peanuts about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup

To the above mixture add:
1/2 cup peanut oil
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon seseme seed oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
If you like spicy food, add cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper.


In a separate big bowl, open a broken up package of uncooked raman noodles.
add one package coleslaw (no dressing just the cabbage) or 4 to 6 cups shredded cabbage. Poor the dressing and other vegetables over the cabbage noodle mixture and toss throughly.

You can add a couple of shredded or chopped cooked chicken breast meat if you want the salad to be a main course.

Put the salad in the fridge for at least a couple of hours for the raman noodles to absorb some of the dressing.
