Japanese Cabbage Salad

 

japanese cabbage salad

1/2 of a medium head of shredded cabbage

2 cups fresh bean sprouts (if you can find them, I usually don’t have any luck)

2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

2 Green onions chopped (I always add more)

1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

2 tbsp sesame seeds

Dressing

1 reserved seasoning pack

2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce

3 tbsp white vinegar

1 tsp salt (I don’t add if I use a full sodium soy sauce)

1 tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp pepper

1 package instant noodles, chicken flavored, broken up, seasoning packet reserved

1 1/2 cups Chow mein noodles (Optional)

Add all the veggies to a bowl, pour broken instant noodles over veggies, toast seeds and almonds then put in salad. In a container mix dressing and shake well then pour over salad and mix salad well.

Hope you enjoy, this salad has become a family favorite!!!

 

 

 

APPLES ANYONE?

Despite the high sugar levels, eating an apple is a much healthier alternative to drinking coffee. The sugars are also one of the main reasons apples have similar effects to caffeine. Vitamins from apples, specifically the skin, are released slowly throughout the body, making you feel more awake!
