Mom's Chicken Cabbage Salad

This was one of my favorite meals as a teen. Usually accompanied by my mom's banana muffins. I would eat a huge bowl for dinner and then pack some for lunch the next day. It still remains of my favorites. My kids though eat the ramen and the chicken and the cabbage disappears only under protest. I tell myself that eventually they will learn to like it as much as me. If not, good thing I pick the menu!
