I had a huge head of napa cabbage and wanted to try something different-- this was delicious! I note that some have recommended using about half the seasoning packet from the ramen noodles. I used all of the packet from an organic "Asian vegetable" ramen which seems to have considerably less sodium than the regular store brands, and the salt level seemed just right. To turn it into a vegetarian main course salad I also sauteed a box of Quorn "naked" cutlets in the same skillet in which I'd cooked the noodles, almonds and sesame seeds and then diced them before adding it all to the salad. I also LOVE sesame seeds and toasted sesame oil, and thought the large quantity of sesame seeds gave it a great taste and texture. I'm embarrassed to admit that my husband and I pretty much devoured the whole thing. We'd washed and chopped the napa cabbage when we brought it home a couple of days before using it, making this salad incredibly quick and easy to put together. I'll definitely be making it again!
