Japanese Salad

Carnival of the Recipes!

I was attending a church function a few weeks ago. It was pot luck. One of the other ladies in the congregation made this wonderful salad: Japanese Salad. It is divine! She shared the recipe with anyone who wanted it. Here it is!

Japanese Salad

1 package prepared slaw
4 scallions, chopped
1 package Ramen noodle soup
1/4 cup margarine or butter
3 tablespoons sesame seeds or 1 cup sunflower kernels
1/4 cup or 1/2 cup slivered almonds


1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup sugar or Equal

Smash noodles in the package, the smaller the better. Melt the margarine or butter in a skillet. Add noodles with flavor pack, seeds or kernels and almonds. Brown mixture well. The browner the mixture, the crunchier the salad. Cool and put in airtight container. Add noodle mixture and dressing before serving.

Geta Shoes
What is Japanese salad without Japanese shoes?

Geta are a style of traditional Japanese footwear. They have a flat wood sole, a "V" style toe thong, and are raised up on two wood strips. In Japanese the strips are called "Ha" which is the Japanese word for tooth or teeth.

In Japanese there are no plurals, so the term geta applies to one, a pair, or a whole teahouse full of them. It's pronounced GE-ta as in "get a job."

The soles are rectangular and the thong that goes between the toes is centered between the two sides of the sole so that the left and right geta are identical. The thong goes between the big toe and the next one so the foot is off-center.

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
