Start by cooking your chicken breasts. You can do this whichever way you prefer -- baking, boiling, in a fry pan, or grilling. I love the flavor that grilled chicken adds to the salad, but most of the time I cut up the raw chicken and cook it on the stove top in a frying pan.
While your chicken is cooking, chop up your medium head of cabbage. I like to use my Mezzaluna Chopper to chop it up.
Next, cut up the green onions, grapes, and apples.
After you've completed all your chopping and dicing, grab your Chicken Ramen Package and something hard (I use the end of a knife) and smash all your hard ramen noodles. I leave it in the package to do this, but some prefer to take it out of the package and put it in a clear ziplock bag.
Once it is all broken up, open the package and set aside the seasoning package. Take the broken ramen, the sliced almonds, chopped green onions, chicken grapes, and apples and add them to the chopped cabbage. Gently mix everything together.
Lastly, put together the dressing by mixing together the oil, vinegar, sugar, and ramen package in a small bowl. Once mixed, add it to your salad and mix everything together! Enjoy!
CAN I MAKE THIS SALAD AHEAD OF TIME?
If making this salad ahead of time, I suggest waiting to dress the salad until right before you serve it. If you're also adding apples, wait to chop and add the apples until right before you dress it. When I know I am going to make the salad ahead of time, I generally just opt to not add apples.
HOW LONG DOES THE SALAD STAY GOOD?
Once dressed, it is best if you can eat it in 2-3 days. After that, the cabbage will become soggy and start to wilt. Also, the grapes will lose their crispness. If I am making this to eat for multiples days, I will only dress the salad I plan on eating and then keep a container of the dressing separate in the refrigerator. When I do this, the salad can last approx 5 days.
