1 packet (3 oz.) ramen noodles (any flavor)
1/3 cup slivered almonds
4 cups chopped Romaine lettuce leaves
2 cups shredded Napa cabbage
8 oz. cooked, diced chicken meat (about 2 cups)
1 1/2 cups green seedless grapes
2 green onions, sliced
For the Orange Mustard Dressing:
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 Tbsps. honey mustard
2 Tbsps. orange juice concentrate
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1. Break up the ramen noodles in the sealed package. Open carefully and discard the seasoning mix. Put the noodle pieces and the almonds in a dry skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring and tossing constantly until the noodles and nuts are toasty brown, about 4 minutes. Set aside to cool.
2. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, cabbage, chicken meat, grapes and green onions.
3. Prepare the dressing in a small bowl by whisking together olive oil, vinegar, mustard, orange juice concentrate and salt and pepper.
4. Combine the salad, toasted noodle mix and the dressing. Toss well and serve.
