Cold Asian Noodle Salad

Submitted by: AERYNEA

Introduction

This is a delicious cold salad with udon noodles and cabbage. Really delicious for a warm evening. Leave out the chicken for vegetarians or sub in shrimp instead.

(UPDATED to correct calorie count, I am not sure why it was showing pepper so high!)

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    6 Cups Bagged Coleslaw Mix (shredded cabbage/carrots)
    12 oz boneless/skinless Chicken breast
    3 Green Onion sliced
    1 Pkg Udon Noodles
    8 Tsp Sunflower Seeds (salt free)

    Dressing Ingredients:
    1/4 Cups Sugar
    1/4 tsp. Salt
    1/2 tsp. black pepper
    1/3 C Light Seasoned Rice Vinegar
    2 tbs Extra Light Olive Oil
    1/3 C Cider Vinegar
    2 Tbs diced fresh Ginger
    1 diced Jalapeno (optional)
    2 Tbs Light Soy Sauce

Directions

Grill or broil chicken breast and set aside to cool completely. When cool, dice and set aside until salad is done.

Cook Udon noodles according to directions, rinse in cool water and set aside as well. These will be added at the end.

Whisk all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and pour over shredded cabbage, toss well to coat.

Add green onions, noodles and chicken to bowl, toss well once again. Salad will taste best if left to chill at this stage for up to an hour but it is definitely not required.

Top with 2tsp sunflower seeds each right before serving.

Serving size is approximately 1.5-2 cups each depending on fineness of cabbage shreds and thickness of noodles.

Leftovers the next day are superb so don't hesitate to "make too much"!

    Super super tasty. I changed it just a wee bit using only 1 tbs of sesame oil (I like the taste) and used the Mr Noodle fresh chinese noodles. It was so tasty and quick.
    i will make it again! Thanks! - 6/3/09

  • i almost didn't make it because the calorie count was so high, but when i went into the detailed view, i saw that 212 calories were attributed to pepper so i knew that i could just adjust it to what the real calories of pepper are and it came out better :) we made it w/o chicken - YUMMY!!! - 7/1/10
