Fumi Asian Chicken Salad

This is truly an unusual salad that satisfies the sweet, salty and crunchy you crave.  It is a salad that came from my cousin “KC’s” family cook book. This is the same cousin where the yummy Tortellini salad I posted came from. This fumi salad is courtesy of “KCs” mom.  This is a cabbage salad with crunchy ingredients like toasted peanuts, sesame seeds and ramen noodles. It ‘s dressed with vinegar and oil.  The only thing that I added was some mandarin oranges for a touch of sweetness.
