ORIENTAL CHICKEN RAMEN NOODLE SALAD

When I went to make this Oriental Chicken Ramen Noodle Salad, I could not find my recipe.  I am sure this never happens to you.  I have confessed before that I am normally a neat person, but when it comes to cookbooks, my life is out of control.  Before you see the picture below and judge me, I truly am organized, and I bet you too have at least one area that needs some help in your house.  All of my cookbooks are located in one or two places, but I use them and read them so much they are a mess.  Cleaning up this cookbook mess is one of the reasons I started blogging.  I wanted to make sure my family’s favorite recipes were easy to find and in one place.  This reason I was looking for this Oriental Chicken Salad recipe was to double check the ingredients for the dressing.

Nappa Vs. Cabbage

I did not find the one I was looking for, but I did find one in Simply Yours by Debbie Dance Uhrig.   Debbie teaches cooking classes at Silver Dollar City Theme Park in Branson, Mo.  Her recipe called for cabbage instead of Napa, a type of Chinese cabbage, which I was going to use.  I decided to use Napa still.  When I went to the store to get it, they had two heads that were as yellow, not any green on them.  You could tell they had sat there for a very long time.  They looked terrible.  So, I grabbed the cabbage.  I could not tell any difference in the taste between the Napa and cabbage, but I do think the Napa holds up better.  If you find a pretty head of Napa, use it.  I also added soy sauce in my dressing as I would normally.
