This Asian coleslaw is lightened up a bit by using only 3 tablespoons of olive oil and a sugar alternative like Splenda to make this kid friendly, flavorful crunchy salad. Try it with white or balsamic vinegar, too.

I loved the recipe although I did change a few things. The beef ramah noodles changed to chicken. The sunflower seeds became almonds. The olive oil was vegetable or canola oil and the splenda became sugar. Everone said mine was exceptional and would I bring it to all the parties so I guess it was great either way. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

this recipe is fantastic! I would have given it 5 stars, but I made some changes. Don't do anything to the ramen other than break it up and mix it in. Plus I put in almonds and sunflower seeds, which was good, and I increased the sugar, olive oil, and vingar to 4 Tbs. It turned out fantastic and I got a ton of compliments on it. My husband has been talking about it constantly. plus, it's light and a great side to almost any cuisine! Read More

I like this better with crunchy noodles either saute them in a little olive oil or just break up without cooking at all. The splenda is a great idea. I have used different flavors of ramen noodles and this works with all of them. Light and tasty! Read More

I'm not a big fan of cole slaw AT ALL but my sister-in-law made this at a barbecue and I had 3rds! Even the kids gobbled it down! Read More

I really loved this coleslaw. The noodles do get soft but I enjoyed the different textures of the crunchy cabbage and the soft noodles. I didn't have Splenda so I used a Sweet n' Low packet and just sprinkled it stirred and tasted until it was sweet enough for my taste. For some reason the grocery store was out of coleslaw mix so I just shredded a small head of cabbage and carrots and I omitted the sunflower seeds because I didn't have them but I'm sure they would have added another element of delicious crunch. I think I'll be making this on a weekly basis we had it with stir fry but it would make a great snacking salad too! Thank you so much! Read More

Pretty good but I think next time I will add my own spices instead of using the seasoning packet from the noodles. I used the chicken and it gave the dish a slightly weird taste. Adding your own spices should lower the sodium level also and make the dish a little more healthy. Read More
