i love spring break
the cabbage salad is an old standby. rick immediately recognized it as his aunt's ramen salad. this is what happens when two midwesterners get together. my mom used to (and probably still does) make this salad all the time -- they probably have the same newspaper recipe. anyways, it's just cabbage, cukes, carrots, scallions, toasted almonds, toasted sesame seeds and crushed ramen noodles. the ramen spice packet is mixed with rice vinegar, sesame oil, a little sugar and a little salt to make the dressing. it's really the easiest thing ever.
