Gramma's Chinese Chicken Salad

This one's from the 80's, originating with my Grandma Barbara Reid (who is by no means Chinese).  This salad is quite tasty, and cheap to make.  I am sure there are ways to make it a little more authentic.  It's a perfect summer dish.

Mix and let stand together overnight:
1 package uncooked Top Ramen (chicken flavor) broken into bits
1 package season mix from Ramen
2 Tbl sugar
1 C oil
6 Tbl white vinegar
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp acsent (no idea what this is)

Next day add:
2 whole cooked chicken breasts, chopped
4 Tbl sesame seeds
4 green onions, sliced
1 package sliced almonds
1 head of red or green (or both!) cabbage, chopped

Mix together and serve!


  1. OK, this shows how dated this recipe is - I finally looked up 'accent spice' and it is another, nicer, term for MSG. So I would advise on omitting this part of the recipe and adding salt or something like that instead.

  2. plenty of MSG in the top ramen seasoning anyway!
