Rarely go to one these days but for many years my standard was a cabbage-noodle salad. People still ask about it "what was that salad you used to make?" Napa cabbage and fresh Chinese noodles. Proportions to taste. Rough recipe -
Cabbage as main ingredient slice cross wise
Noodles - fresh Chinese - yellow in color, thicker than spaghetti with a good chew so maybe alkaline? Simmer to taste with splashes of soy sauce in the water. In a plastic bag in every Chinese market I've been to
Add-ins: halved grapes, green onion, cucumber
Dressing: Chinese Chicken Salad dressing like Girards or make own, mayo, rice or cider vinegar if it needs more zing.
Holds up a long time.
ETA: some Dijon or some pickled ginger (any type) is nice too
