Recipe: Ramen Noodle Salad

Are you stocking up on Ramen noodles? They are cheap and very easy to prepare -- especially in this salad! Here's a salad you can make with your pantry's givings with a little help from your garden:

Ingredients - Salad:
1 head of lettuce (or 4 cups greens)
6-8 green onions/bunching onions
1 6-ounce can mandarin oranges
1/2 cup dried celery dices (rehydrated)
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds (toasted)
1 3-ounce package of Ramen noodles, uncooked & crumbled

Ingredients - Dressing:
1/4 cup vegetable oil (or avocado or walnut or olive oil)
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
seasoning packet from noodles *
sugar/salt/pepper to taste

Chop green onions. Tear lettuce into bite sizes, then wash and spin dry greens. In a large bowl that can be covered, mix together the greens and green onions with the mandarin oranges and rehydrated celery dices. Cover and refrigerate. Blend together dressing (seasoning to taste). Just before serving, add to the salad the dressing, almonds and noodles.

* I use only half of the seasoning packet because it's very high in sodium (bad for my blood pressure).
