Marinated Noodles and Cabbage

Memories of my Grandma Carlson always accompany this salad for she was the one who first made it for me.

Marinated Noodles and Cabbage

1 (3-oz) package ramen noodles with chicken flavor
1/4 cup cooking oil
3 tablespoons rice vinegar or wine vinegar (I use red wine vinegar.)
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups finely shredded cabbage
1 (6 3/4 -oz) can chunk-style chicken, drained (I used a 12.5 oz can--Kirkland brand from Costco.)
1/4 cup sliced green onion
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
3 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted (I used slivered because I had them on hand.)
green pepper rings

Break up noodles in noodle mix. In mixing bowl combine oil, vinegar, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, dash pepper, and seasoning packet from noodle mix; stir to dissolve seasonings. Stir in broken noodles, cabbage, chicken, onion, and sesame seeds. Cover. Chill several hours. Before serving, stir in almonds. Garnish with green pepper. Serves 6 to 8.

Julie's Notes: I added pimiento for a bit of color. Red pepper would work well too.
