Chinese take out is a staple for most families.  But it's also very easy to make Asian inspired dishes at home. Stocking your with oriental cooking staples like rice vinegar, sesame oil, curry paste, coconut milk and soy sauce means you can whip up dinner in no time.

One of our staples is fried rice. It's a great way to use up leftovers! However to make really good friend rice, you also need day old rice. That doesn't work well on the fly.  So while the pantry is stocked with ingredients, keeping a box of Ling Ling Fried Rice entrees makes for an easy dinner option especially when paired with a crunchy Oriental Salad.

If your family loves Chinese take out, you're going to love this quick and easy dinner.

Easy 5 Minute Oriental Salad Recipe

The trick making this recipe super quick and easy is a bag of coleslaw mix! No shredding cabbage and carrots. It's all done for you. Just dump the bag in to a large mixing bowl.

Next whip up the oriental dressing.  Keeping rice vinegar, sesame oil and such in your pantry means you can make this salad whenever you want. Just whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl.

Drizzle the dressing over the coleslaw mix and toss to coat. I discovered that I needed more dressing so I doubled the batch but it will depend on what you like best.

Sliced almonds and Ramen noodles give the salad a little crunch. Add them with the green onions and toss again.

Once the salad is done, set it aside and let the flavors mix while you cook Ling Ling Fried Rice.

While the salad is mellowing, pick out your favorite Ling Ling Fried Rice from the five different options. It is available in Yakitori Chicken, Yakiniku Beef, Thai-Style Chicken, Chinese-Style Vegetable and Bibimbap Beef.  Each box comes with two bags of fried rice and you can make it in a skillet like I did or in the microwave.

Keeping a few boxes in the freezer is a great idea for a quick dinner.  And with this $2 off a box of Ling Ling Fried Rice at any retailer where the products are sold, you can try them all!

Follow the directions on the package to make the fried rice. It was super easy to make in the skillet. Just dump and cook.

Once the friend rice is done, serve it hot with a side of Oriental Salad.  The chop sticks are entirely optional! Ling Ling's Infusion Cooking Method ensures Ling Ling's delicious sauces are infused in to each grain of rice. No one in your family will believe it's not take out.
