So refreshing and colorful! Great as a side dish or a salad on its own. A 'slap-chop' works great if you have one. When I bring this to a party, I keep the oils, veggies, seeds, ramen, and sugar in separate bags until it's time to mix and serve. It tastes better to me when I don't mix the sugar with the oil right away.

5 stars all the way! I did leave out the sunflower seeds because I didn't want to buy them and felt the other two types of seeds were enough. My only one complaint is that it was a little bit too sweet for me but I tend to be more sensitive to sweet than most. I'll scale the sugar back next time but that is the only change I will make. I found it easiest to mix all of the dressing ingredients together in a separate bowl until well combined and then just before serving I poured it over the cabbage mixture and gave it a few stirs. It makes for a beautiful presentation this way. On the ingredient list the "dressing" ingredients start at the sugar and down and then your seasoning packet from the ramen. Adjust the sugar if you feel the need but other than that I promise you will not be disappointed! Read More

I had a recipe similar to this a long time ago, couldn't find it. But used this one to try to remember my lost recipe. It turned out delish. I used 1/2 head green cabbage, 1/4 head red, 1 medium onion, 2 carrots - all shredded in my food processor. For 'sauce' - seasoning packet from noodles (oriental flavor works best, but I only had chicken), 1/4 cup light olive oil, 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar, 1/8 cup soy sauce, 1/8 cup water, 2 Tb white sugar, 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil. Mix it all together. I tossed in some 'zingy currants' I had on hand from Nature Box - could use raisins, was looking for sunflower seeds, but all I could find was sesame seeds, so I toasted them and added that with the crunched up noodles to the rest of the salad. If you add a grilled, boneless skinless chicken breast, diced, you've got a one dish summer meal that's great - and leftovers are so yum. Read More

Still searching for the perfect version. I didn't care for the black pepper. Also would like to cut the oil. Read More
