My new favorite salad

I found an awesome recipe for an "oriental" type salad on recipezaar.com the other day and modified it a bit to create what is now my new favorite salad.

First, I must say, I LOVE cabbage. Red cabbage, green cabbage, asian cabbage, any kind of cabbage. I'll go on these cabbage eating kicks where I eat it everyday. Until, my body screams at me to STOP! and then I take a break until I get the hankering again.

So, when I found this salad I couldn't resist:

One head of Purple or Green Cabbage (you can also use the pre-shredded coleslaw bags)
Grilled chicken
Toasted almonds
One bag Ramen Noodles, crushed

For the dressing:
1/2 C Sugar
1/2 C Vinegar
1/4 C Oil
1/4 C Soy sauce

Mix the dressing separately and pour over the cabbage and chicken. Top with crushed Ramen and almonds. It's a great sweet and sour salad that is perfect for warm summer days!
