Pai Mai (Chopped Cabbage and Chicken Salad)

“You are people with a present and with a future. Don’t muff the ball. Be excellent.” –Gordon B. Hinckley

I found this great recipe here.

1 head of cabbage, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. Sesame seeds
1/2 c. roasted almonds, chopped
1 chicken breast, diced and cooked in Teriyaki sauce
1 pkg. Ramen noodles
Seasoning salt (to taste)
6 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
2 squirts lemon juice
salt and pepper (to taste)
In a large bowl combine cabbage, sesame seeds, almonds and chicken. In a separate, small bowl combine sugar, oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pour oil mixture into cabbage mixture and toss until cabbage is well coated. Refrigerate the cabbage mixture in the fridge to let all the flavors settle in.  Break up Ramen noodles into pieces and place on baking sheet. Sprinkle seasoning salt over noodles and broil for about 1 minute (keep a close eye on them so they don’t burn). Toss salad mixture again  top with noodles immediately before serving (if you do it earlier the noodles will get soggy).
