"Stash Buster" Oriental Salad...

If you're a friend on my Brynwood Facebook group (or my personal page), you know that I've been preparing all week for a "Stash Buster Sale" in our garage this weekend. I'm purging lots of knitting supplies, but also some sewing patterns and a few household items.

Yesterday was my set up day as I open the doors this afternoon, so I was pretty busy. Handsome had band rehearsal and was going to join friends for dinner afterward, so I decided that something in the salad family would be in order for my dinner. A nice meal and then I could finish up marking and arranging things for the sale.
This recipe was shared with me by my friend, Wendi, when I still lived in Wisconsin. The temperature got into the mid-80s yesterday in south Florida, so salad was a perfect choice. Here's the recipe, in case you're interested in trying it for yourself.

Oriental Salad

Melt in a pan:
  • 3/4 c. butter
  • seasoning packets from 3 packages Oriental Ramen noodles
  • Ramen noodles, broken up
  • 1/2 c. sesame seeds
  • package slivered almonds
  • 2 cans water chestnuts, sliced, drained
  • fresh mushrooms, sliced
Saute' only until golden brown. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine:
  •  Romaine lettuce, torn up
  • green or red onion, chopped (optional)
  • red, green or yellow peppers, chopped
Combine with saute' ingredients, and then mix with dressing (recipe below). Once all the ingredients are mixed and covered with the dressing, refrigerate until cold. Serve.

Mix together in a shaker:
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 3/4 c. sugar (I never use the entire amount of sugar)
  • 1/4 c. cider vinegar
  • 3 T. soy sauce 
Pour entire mixture over the salad and mix well before serving.

I hope you enjoy it!

I'll be running around all day today, but will take photos before it gets busy around here to share with you. Hope you have something fun planned for today!
