One of my favorite things about summer is the food. These hot days call for cool crisp salads and slaws. This is one of our old favorites. We love vidalia chicken slaw!
No need to turn on the oven and heat up the kitchen. I use a can of cooked chicken or slow cook a chicken breast. Delicious as a main dish or a side. You can also leave the chicken out and just make a delicious vidalia onion slaw. The ramen noodles add the yummiest crunchy texture with the cabbage but soak in the dressing so they aren't too crunchy.
Vidalia onion slaw needs to sit in the fridge for a couple of hours to blend the flavors so it is a great make ahead dish and always goes over well at potlucks. The leftovers are great the next day too, great for packing in the lunchbox.
Two 10 oz. bags angel hair shredded cabbage or about 9 cups shredded cabbage
2 packages chicken flavored ramen noodles
1 chicken breast cooked and shredded/diced* or 1 can chicken, drained
12 oz bottle (1 1/2 cups) Vidalia onion dressing
1 bunch green onions, sliced
Break up ramen noodles. Mix all ingredients together including ramen noodle flavor packets. Chill in fridge to blend flavors.
*I cook a chicken breast in the crock pot all day. Simply cover with water and cook on low in slow cooker.
