This is a new favorite salad. It actually improves with age so you can make it a day in advance.
Use 2 packets of ramen noodles. Discard the flavor packet. Cover them with hot water until they soften and then drain them.
For the dressing, mix 1 C. of vegetable oil, 1/2 C. sugar, 3/4 C. rice vinegar, 2 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. black pepper and 1 tsp. sesame seeds. I added a couple tablespoons of sesame oil and some fresh cilantro too.
Thinly slice 1 head of cabbage and 1 red onion. You can use green onions if you have them.
Brown 1/2 cup if sliced almonds in 2 T. of butter.
