An overnight salad using ramen noodles, cabbage, chicken, almonds, and green onions. This is GREAT -- one of my husband's favorites and it serves a ton of people. Try substituting cashews for almonds and a dash of sesame oil for sesame seeds.

THIS SALAD IS AWESOME!! I like the noodles crunchy, so I add them about 1-2 hours before serving. Using the prepared (already shredded tri color) cabbage bags from the grocer makes this a breeze!! I substituted garlic flavored Rice Wine Vinegar and left out the chicken. Doubled the recipe and there were NO LEFTOVERS!! Thank you!! Read More

Used this to use up a bunch of cabbage from my csa. Took it to a potluck...I wasn't that crazy about it but it got eaten so someone liked it. I added a couple of carrots to the cabbage. Read More

This was very good. I used about half the amount of vinegar called for and we thought that was enough. I used sesame oil and added some diced celery. I'll make this one again! Read More

This is such a great salad, amazing how just a few simple ingredients can be so flavorful. For those on a tight budget like myself, its just as good without the chicken. Also, if you have rice wine vinegar, I'd recommend using that instead of regular white vinegar. Read More

5 stars. This salad is wonderful used cole slaw mix instead of cabbage and cut the recipe way down becouse it is just my husband and me. Also mixed all the seasoning together first then poured over the salad. This is a dish I will be sharing at get togethers and pot luck dinners. Can't wait for others to try it. Thanks so much Susan for the recipe. Elaine Read More

If you like coleslaw you'll LOVE this salad. I you don't like coleslaw (like me because of the soupy mayonaisse) you'll LOVE this salad. Definitely a great dish to prepare in advance to cut down on pre-party work. And the taste is addictive. Finally a new use for Ramen noodles. They're not just for college students anymore. Read More

Great recipe. Make sure to season the chicken well (I cook in sesame oil)it has an influence on the overall taste. I also substitute rice vinegar and sesame oil for original ingredients in the recipe and use prepackaged cabbage mix for ease. Thanks! Read More

Very good salad. I made the oil in the recipe 1/2 sesame and 1/2 vegetable oil. I also added 2 shredded carrots. When I was making the dressing I added one minced garlic clove to the dressing ingredients and then let it boil over medium heat. Once dressing chilled I tossed it with the salad and chilled again Everyone loved it! Read More

This was a tasty and easy-to-make recipe. I wish I had added a little red cabbage though for color's sake. I like that it is oil and not mayonaise based. Tastes good and has good texture but needs a little more exciting flavor though. I added a soy sauce/sesame oil mix to it and gave it a better flavor. Read More
