Cabbage Crunch Salad

We love this salad in the summer, it is a family favorite.  It tastes so fresh, has a very nice crunch and is wonderful for a bbq, plus I love it's simplicity.  

1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. sugar
3 T. vinegar
1/2 t. salt
1 flavor packet from chicken flavored ramen
1/2 head cabbage, shredded
1 pck. ramen noodles, broken and uncooked
2 T. sesame seeds, toasted
1/2 c. sliced almonds, toasted

1.  In small bowl whisk oil, sugar, vinegar, salt and flavor packet till thoroughly combined.  Set aside.

2.  In large bowl place cabbage.  Toast sesame seeds and almonds (I put them in my oven on 400 degrees and stir every few minutes until light brown.  Watch very carefully).  Right before serving add sesame seeds, almonds and ramen to cabbage.  Add dressing and stir well.  Serve.
