Chicken, cabbage, and cashews. This one is a diet specialty if you aren't eating carbs. I found the recipe years ago and made it my own by omitting a couple things and adding my "better" ingredients. The original said to add canned chicken breast, but I just use regular baked or pan-seared chicken. Too, the original said to use uncooked ramen noodles, along with the seasoning packet (the noodles soften on their own if you leave the salad in the fridge an hour or so). This was actually pretty good, but the seasoning has MSG, so I started doing my own seasonings.
Three C's Cabbage Salad
4 cups shaved cabbage (I just slice thinly)
2-3 cups cooked chicken breast, cubed
1/4 cup green onions, diced
olive oil, about 1/4 cup?
spices (onion powder, garlic powder, ground red pepper, salt, parsley, oregano, Mrs. Dash's Tomato Basil Garlic...)
1/2 cup to 1 cup cashews (or walnuts)
Toss all ingredients (I use my hands to mix thoroughly) and sprinkle with cashews. You can also use walnuts. The only spice to be careful with is the red pepper. If you decide you've added too much spice, just shave up some more cabbage, add a little chicken and olive oil, and mix again.
