Oriental Chicken Salad

This oriental chicken salad is by far our favorite meal-sized salad. I can never eat just one little ole serving. It’s addictingly good. The dressing is just the right combination of acid and sweet. Instead of croutons there are crunchy yummy tried Ramen noodles. They make for the perfect topping over the just-as-crunchy cabbage.

Oriental Chicken Salad

I love the dressing for this oriental chicken salad so much that I always double the recipe for it. The Ramen noodles stay crunchy in the dressing so you don’t get down to the bottom of the plate only to discover sad, soggy ‘croutons’. Don’t be afraid to double the amount of Ramen either.

Also try my southern fried chicken salad.
