Sumi Salad

1 pk shredded cabbage (for coleslaw)
1 bunch green onions, chopped fine
2 3 oz pkg Ramen noodles, uncooked (any flavor, discard seasoning packet)
2 c chopped cooked chicken
black sesame seeds
1/4 c sliced almonds, toasted

1/2 c vegetable oil
4-6 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
1/4 c sugar
salt and pepper

In small saucepan heat oil and sugar over med-low heat until sugar is dissolved. Cool completely, then whisk in rice vinegar and salt and pepper. While Ramen noodles are still in package, bang it on the counter to break the noodles into small pieces. Combine cabbage, green onions, Ramen, and chicken in large bowl and toss with dressing. Add sesame seeds and almonds just before serving. This salad is a great make-ahead salad and is wonderful on croissants.
