I am renaming this salad to stuff your face, only because you can’t stop eating more. My mother brought Mad Hatter Salad Recipe – Allrecipes.com to a family gathering and I am hooked. The only problem is that it makes a ton, so you have to make it for larger gatherings.
Lucky for me we are hosting a birthday and I get to make a bunch of my favorite food. I did let the kids pick out their favorites as well, it is their birthdays after all. Many people went up for seconds at the party. Even though the leftovers were soggy I ate them all up the next day for breakfast.
I have changed the original only slightly, but in a healthier direction. I did not notice a taste difference, I just reduced the butter amount and changed-up the directions a bit.
Mad Hatter Salad:
- 1 head of cabbage, shredded
- 1 head of broccoli florets, cut up
- 8 green onions, chopped
- 2 packages of chicken or oriental top ramen
- 1 cup slivered almond, optional or served on the side
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup oil (grape seed, canola, vegetable, etc.)
- 1 tsp soy sauce
Combine cabbage, broccoli, and green onions in a large bowl.
Meanwhile melt butter in a pan and toasted almonds, sunflower seeds, and ramen noodles with one package on seasoning. If you are keeping the almonds separate I just leave them in a bowl at the side and skip toasting them.
While in a jar combine the dressing ingredients and the other package of seasoning mix, and shake what your mama gave you.
