Chinese Chicken Salad

A little less than halfway through the two week $200 challenge and we have $70 left. We have spent it on groceries, a birthday gift, gas and stuff to get cat pee out of carpeting - NICE! We don't have many plans for the long weekend ahead but to relax and get some small projects around the house done. Projects that don't require purchasing anything as we already have the supplies.

Monday night I made Chinese Chicken Salad. It's one of the least expensive recipies to make. We only needed less than $5 worth of groceries because we didn't have a few ingredients on hand.

Here is the recipe...

Ingredients
1 chicken breast - cooked and cubed
2 tablespoons sesame seeds (I have a large jar of toasted ones at home)
1/2 cup slivered almonds (I had pine nuts which was yummy and I think I prefer it)
1 head cabbage - shredded
4 green onion
1 package Ramen noodles - crumbled

Dressing
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup oil
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 package Ramen flavoring (chicken)

Mix all ingredients together and let sit overnight. It tastes better the next day!

I don't have all the numbers but it's probably under $1 per serving.
