    Fumi Salad

    My friend, Jane, brought this amazing salad called Fumi Salad for my potluck birthday party. Best party ever! This salad is not only refreshing, tasty and healthy ... it's a meal unto itself. Here's the recipe:

    1 head of cabbage, chopped
    8 green onions, chopped
    ½ C. slivered or sliced almonds
    ½ C. sesame seeds (about 2.5 oz.)
    2 pkgs. dried Ramen noodles (don't use the flavoring/seasoning in pkg.)

    Option: Add 2 cups of chopped cooked chicken for a main dish salad. And flax seeds can be substituted for sesame seeds.

    In a large bowl, mix together chopped cabbage* and green onions. Toast almonds and sesame seeds, with no oil, until just browned. Right before serving, mix almonds and sesame seeds into salad; crush Ramen noodles and add to the salad. Add dressing and toss. Depending on the size of the cabbage, this should serve 10.

    1 C. vegetable oil
    6 Tbsp. rice vinegar
    3-4 Tbsp, sugar, to tast
    2 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. pepper

    Put all ingredients in a jar and shake thoroughly.

    *The benefits of cabbage: maintains strong bones in the elderly (as it's an outstanding source of Vitamin K), it's a very good source of fiber, vitamin B1, B2 and Omega 3 fatty acids which according to the American Heart Association is very good for the heart. I hear it will also do wonders for those of us entering the menopausal stage of our lives. So eat up.
