This recipe comes to me from the Chrisholm Amish Farmstead and it’s perfect for spring. The Amish love salads like these, chock full of homegrown veggies. You can use store-bought, but if you are looking for a perfect spring salad with color and crunch, try this! The La Choy noodles is obviously a new, processed wrinkle to the recipe but these have actually become pretty popular in Amish communities. Amish bulk food stores often carry the noodles.
- 1 bag finely shredded cabbage
- 1 bag of shredded carrots
- 1 package frozen defrosted peas, drained
- 1 can corn, drained
- 15 to 20 thin slices of quartered cucumber
- 1 green pepper, chopped
- La Choy noodles ( ¼ to ½ package)
- In a large glass bowl layer the first six ingredients. On top lay some La Choy noodles.
- Finally pour one bottle of creamy Italian dressing over top of vegetables. Do this immediately before serving. Don’t stir. Chill and serve.
