Oriental Chicken Salad


This Oriental Chicken Salad would be a great dish for a potluck.  I remember when I was like 15 ish or something like that and I went to a camp at a college. I stayed the first night with a girl I had grown up with and her roommates. We went on a little BBQ/picnic and a girl made a salad with crunched up top ramen noodles. I thought it was so weird. Years later my girlfriend gave me this recipe and it’s delicious. Very light, but flavorful.

Cabbage is high in vitamin C, an antioxidant that may protect against heart disease, certain cancers and vision loss.

Eating carrots will improve your vision.

Carrots are high in vitamin A, a nutrient essential for good vision.
