This is soooooooo yummy, one of my faves. If you're going to make a huge main-dish salad for several people, double the dressing recipe.
1/2 c. oil (olive is good)
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. white vinegar (I like to use rice vinegar)
1 1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
Shake all ingredients together in a screw-top jar.
Napa cabbage (or regular cabbage, romaine lettuce, iceberg lettuce - whatever is crunchy)
toasted sesame seeds (I do these two together on the tray in my toaster oven)
uncooked ramen noodles, crunched up
mandarin orange segments (from a can or fresh, although that's more work)
green or red onion
feta cheese (I know it sounds weird, but it is good)
Add some chicken and crumbled bacon and it's not vegetarian anymore, but it's sooo good.
