Oriental Salad (Video)

1 head cabbage, chopped  (can be mixed with purple or Nappa cabbage)
6-8 scallions, sliced (optional)   
1 stick butter
1 cup slivered almonds
½ cup sesame seeds
1 large can or package of chow mein noodles
2 cans mandarin oranges (drained)
 
Melt butter and add sesame seeds, almonds and noodles.  Stir fry until golden brown.  Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Mix with chopped cabbage and oranges and toss with dressing.  Season with black pepper and salt if needed. 
 
Dressing:
½ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon dry mustard
½ cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon dried red pepper
1 cup salad oil (I like sesame oil for this) 
 
Mix all ingredients except oil, then slowly whisk in the oil until well blended and thickened slightly.
