Ingredients:

Salad
  • 6 cups - napa cabbage and bok coy
  • 4 whole - green onions
  • 1/2 cups - mushrooms
  • 5 - radishes
  • Soy Vinaigrette
  • 1/2 cups - safflower oil
  • 1/2 cups - rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons - soy sauce
  • 3/4 cups - sugar
  • Crunchy mixture
  • 3 ounces - Ramen Noodles
  • 4 tablespoons - butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cups - sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cups - almonds
  • Directions:

    Chop cabbage, bok choy, onion, mushrooms and radishes and combine. Refrigerate, tightly covered. This can be done the day before using.
    To prepare vinaigrette, combine oil, vinegar, soy sauce and sugar (or Sweet & Low) in small container that you can shake. (If using sugar, cook combined ingredients over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves, and then cool). Set dressing aside. This can be done ahead of time and refrigerated.
    To prepare crunchy mixture, crumble noodles into bite-size pieces and combine with sunflower seeds and almonds. Melt butter in jelly-roll pan in 350 degree oven; add seed, nuts and noodles, and toss to coat. Bake, stirring often, until lightly toasted, being careful not to over cook, as almonds will toast quickly. Cool. Seal in plastic bag until ready to use. This can be done several days ahead. Do not refrigerate crunchy mixture.
    Just before serving, toss all ingredients in a large salad bowl.
