Japanese Cole Slaw

Post  MidTNJasonF on 4/24/2010, 7:07 pm

Another one from my Mother that has become a summer picnic favorite. I have seen pounds of this disappear on a July 4th BBQ buffet table.

Salad:

1 large head of cabbage sliced thin
4 chicken breasts cooked and chopped
2 packages Ramen Noodles broken, soaked, and drained. (toss the seasoning packet in the trash.
1 cup chopped onion (red or green)
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Dressing:

3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup white vinegar
6 tbsp. sugar (or less to taste)
1 tbsp. salt
1 1/2 teaspoon salad seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoon pepper



Mix dressing ingredients well and pour over all salad ingredients except almonds.
Stir well and refrigerate overnight.
Stir again and add almonds before serving.

this looks delightful - i'll have to do some subbing though d/t family allergies (gluten free, soy free, nut/tree nut free, and fish/shellfish free)

considering rice pasta - a penne or ziti (cooked, drained) - as i've never seen a gluten/soy free ramen noodle

and for the nuts using sunflower kernals instead of the sesame and almond

will have to let you know how that goes for a sub. Smile

thanks again for sharing! this is going on a printout for a try in the next 2 weeks! Smile

i just looked up what 'salad seasoning' is as i didn't know for sure what the blend was

and for those folks curious and have good pantry stock *grin*

here it is:

2 tablespoons parsley flakes
1
tablespoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
1 tablespoon
each marjoram, basil, dried chives, celery seed, dill weed


i'm going to use sea salt for the 'seasoned' salt and a blend of white and black pepper for the 'seasoned' pepper.


jason does this sound pretty close to your blend of salad seasoning?

shoot, this sounds so good, i wish i had a cabbage to use - i have everything else. . .

but alas, i will have to wait til next grocery trip to buy some as i didn't plant any in my garden this year.

sunflower seeds would probably work well although sesame has a distinct flavor that may be hard to duplicate. I am sure the result will be different but great regardless.

My first thought when I thought of substitution is a fine spatzle if you have a good gluten free flour substitute. It has a similar texture to the ramen and if done in a thinner/finer noodle I could see it working. I could also see doing this with spaghetti squash if that fit into your allergy needs.

Be sure and tell us how your changes turn out.

Dude, I'm totally all over the spaghetti squash! That's an AWESOME suggestion! wondering if it's available this time of year in the store, though . . . .it's VERY VERY hard to make a gluten free noodle homemade as the bean flours and other 'flours' i work with are real sticky and gluey. not conducive to running thru a pasta machine. and man, do i ever miss pasta. i'm italian and used to make the BEST spinach pasta EVER! ah well . . .i'd rather not hurt so gluten is gone and the life of a celiac is not bad at all . . .bring on the lemon cheesecake. *grin*

can't do sesame because it's in similar family to the other nuts my oldest kid is severely allergic too. i miss my sesame dishes, but i've learned to adapt.

may be a splash of vanilla would add in the sesame 'nutty' flavor it would be lacking. . .will have to think about this. (i'm out of sherry or i'd use that liquor).

i'll also do a visit next time i'm in columbus at the asian grocery store and peruse the rice noodle options - might have something there that would be similar to a ramen noodle but also allergen friendly. .. (many have soy or fish/shellfish in them)

You know that is a good question on the salad seasoning. It was just something my mother always had in the pantry. If I recall it was a McCormicks product.

It may be similar to this product now. http://www.mccormick.com/Products/Herbs-and-Spices/Blends/Seasoning-Blends/Salad-Supreme-Seasoning.aspx

That lists a blend of Romano cheese, sesame and poppy seeds, paprika, garlic, and black pepper.
