a yummy salad that is definitely not healthy!

my mom got this recipe from a friend a few years ago and i love it! it's called 'chinese salad' and it's sweet, but sour at the same time (because of both sugar and vinegar in the dressing). it's certainly not a healthy salad, but i definitely am a fan. i had been thinking about it for about a week, since we haven't had it yet this summer, and we finally had it with dinner the other night. it's easy enough, so i thought i would share.

1 head nappa lettuce-chop fine
4 green onions

2 packages 'mr noodles' chicken flavor--break up dry noodles while still in bag
1 package only of 'mr noodles' seasoning from above
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1 cup sliced almonds

brown all 'topping' ingredients in butter (i use oil), approx 1/4 cup. DON'T BURN! you can do this ahead of time and set aside until needed.

1/2 cup vinegar
1 cup sugar
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 cup olive oil

heat until sugar has dissolved, then refrigerate until ready. mix lettuce, green onion, topping and dressing together and serve!

this is a very sweet dressing, as you can see by all the sugar in it! it's definitely different, but my family love it; not sure if dylan is a big fan though. we usually double the recipe to have some for the next few days.. mmm i also like lots of the topping in mine. i could go for a bowl right now....

sorry no picture, as i don't have an awesome nikon or anything. it would just end up looking like any other salad. :(
