This post is part of my month-long series, Ode to Cabbage, which highlights my love of this amazing, multitalented veggie with several healthy recipes. Be sure to check them all out!
My friend Kelly makes this amazing Asian cabbage slaw. Every time she brings it to a party, everyone talks about it and needs the recipe. Including me. And now, including you.
Kelly’s 33¢/serving Amazing Asian cabbage slaw
1/2 head green cabbage
1 small package chicken ramen noodles (yes, like ramen from college!)
1 bunch green onions
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup vegetable oil (or olive oil)
3 tbsp. vinegar (I used rice vinegar but any kind is fine)
1 tbsp. sugar (or sweetener like honey, agave or Splenda)
seasoning packet from the ramen
salt & pepper to taste
Whisk all dressing ingredients in the bottom of a big salad bowl. (Just use the big salad bowl because it’s one less dish to clean!) Chop the green cabbage into thin slices, and chop the green onions. (Use all the green onions, not just the part that’s light green! The dark green color looks gorge next to the light green cabbage.) Break apart the ramen noodles and throw the sunflower seeds in. Toss and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
Cheap, easy and everyone loves it.
My green cabbage cost $1.16, the ramen was 18¢ and the green onions were 46¢ and just 21¢ for the sunflower seeds. (I didn’t count the items in the dressing, since those are pantry staples.) So that’s what makes it just $2.01, which is just 33¢ per serving!
And it feeds an army. Perfect for your next get-together!
