3 c. finely chopped romaine or iceberg lettuce
2 c. shredded red cabbage
2 c. shredded chicken-Leftover rotisserie chicken works perfect for this recipe
1/2 c. jarred mandarin oranges, drained
1 instant ramen packet, crushed (flavor packet discarded) broken up ramen—the cheap, dried stuff, not the fresh noodles that come refrigerated. Broken up, the crunchy, wavy noodles act as croutons.

1/3 c. sliced green onions
1/4 c. sliced almonds
3 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. sesame oil
1 tbsp. hoisin sauce

1 tsp. minced ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 c. vegetable oil

  3. Before serving, drizzle dressing over salad and toss to combine.
