What exactly is the japanese soup mix in this recipe and what should I buy?

4 Half chicken breasts, cooked -and cut in julienne strips 4 c Red or green cabbage, -shredded 1 pk 3 ounce Japanese noodle soup -mix, any flavor(use noodles -only and do not cook) 4 Green onions, sliced thinly 1/2 c Slivered almonds, toasted 1/4 c Sesame seeds, toasted
DRESSING: 2 tbs Sugar 1 1/2 To 2 teaspoons pepper 1/3 c Vegetable oil 1/2 ts Salt 3 tb White wine vinegar 1 ts Sesame oil

Mix all dressing ingredients together in a jar. Shake to combine. Let stand for 2 hours to blend flavors. At serving time, combine chicken, cabbage, noodles, green onions, almonds and sesame seeds in a salad bowl. Toss with dressing. Noodles will lose their crunch if allowed to stand.

      Yep, I have this recipe for ramen salad tucked away from my college days. You break up the block of instant ramen noodles, don't need to use the soup powder.
