A little bit different and so easy to make is this 'Changs crispy Noodle salad'.
1/2 to 1 Chinese cabbage , or 1/4 savoy cabbage (shredded finely)
6 Shallots (Green onion) chopped
100 gms lightly roasted slivered almonds or pinenuts
1 packet of Chang's Original Fried noodles or crunchy noodles (I prefer the crunchy noodles.
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup castor sugar
1 tblsp Soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil (optional)
1/2 cup olive oil
In a saucepan combine all of the dressing ingredients and heat until the sugar is dissolved. Stir well and set aside to cool.
In a salad bowl combine cabbage, almonds and shallots.
Pour cooled dressing over and toss to coat.
Just before serving, toss through the fried noodles.
This salad recipe is great because it can be made in advance and eaten days after if you still have left overs. It goes well as an accompaniment to many dishes and if you wish you can also add shredded bbq chicken or pork if you want to make more of a meal of it.
