Oriental Napa Salad-"The Best"

Like everyone else, we share a lot of recipes at work.  One of my fellow employees brought this wonderful salad for an office party.... needless to say everyone wanted the recipe.  I add chicken to this salad and turn it into the main course.  Add some warm buns and you've got a great supper!

The Recipe...
1 Napa cabbage, shredded
3 T. butter
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cup oil
3 T. soy sauce
5 green onions, sliced fine
1/2 cup sesame seeds
2 packages ramen noodles, crushed
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
2 chicken breasts (cooked and cooled)
1 small can mandarin oranges
Carrot slivers (optional)

Saute almonds and ramen noodles in butter until they start to brown. Add sesame seeds. Stir constantly until brown and crisp.  Set aside.  Mix cabbage and onions in serving bowl; in separate container mix oil, sugar, soy sauce and vinegar.  Shake well.  Refrigerate until 20 minutes before serving time.  Pour dressing over cabbage mixture and chicken to marinade.  Add noodle mixture and toss just before serving.  Sprinkle with mandarin oranges and carrot slivers. (optional)
