  • 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.
  • 1/2 c. shredded carrot
  • 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
  • 2.5 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. minced ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 c. vegetable oil


  1. Make salad: In a large bowl, toss together lettuce, red cabbage, chicken, mandarin oranges, crushed ramen noodles, carrots, green onions, and sliced almonds.
  2. Make dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, honey, sesame oil, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Slowly drizzle in vegetable oil, whisking constantly until emulsified.
  3. Before serving, drizzle dressing over salad and toss to combine.
