How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Oriental Cabbage Salad


1 lg head cabbage
2 bunch of green onions
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1 cup of sunflower seeds
½ cup slivered almonds
1 pkg uncooked chicken flavored ramen noodles
½ cup vegetable oil 
½ cup vinegar
½ cup sugar
black pepper, as desired. 

Chop cabbage as desired, as for slaw (usually thin ribbons).  Add chopped onion, celery, sunflower seeds, almonds and noodles.  Smash the noodles in the package so they are in bits. 

Put oil, vinegar and sugar into the blender.  Add the chicken seasoning from the ramen noodles and season w/ black pepper.  Blend well.  Pour over the salad and toss together. Chill.  Best when made ahead of time so that the dressing sits on the cabbage.
