I altered dressing recipe: 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup sesame oil, used rice vinegar in place of apple cider and added 1 Tablespoon soy sauce. Also, toasted the almonds and sesame. Excellent. Read More

A little dry. Needs more dressing. Next time I'll add more sweetener. Read More

I doubled the dressing as Brenda suggested. I took the salad to a potluck and it must have been a hit because the bowl was half empty. Very good. Read More

I did change it quite a bit, like a lot of cooks do, but will still rate a 5. I added roasted sunflower seeds, a can of drained mandarin oranges, used 2 pkgs of Oriental flavor ramen noodles with the flavor packets, 1/2 cup sugar vs 2 TBS, a squirt of honey, used 3/4 cup olive oil vs 1/2 cup (too dry with all of the other ingredients otherwise) a tsp toasted sesame seed oil, a bag of shredded coleslaw with green and red cabbage and carrots mix vs just 1/2 head shredded cabbage and no salt. I crushed the 2 pkgs of ramen noodles in a bag, then spread them, along with the slivered almonds and sesame seeds on a cookie sheet, which I toasted for about 8 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. I warmed the oils in a 2 cup glass measuring cup in the microwave, about 2 minutes, then whisked the sugar and the 2 flavor packets in it until dissolved. I then whisked in the apple cider vinegar and pepper. I put all the ingredients in a large bowl, then poured the oil mixture over all and mixed well. Chilled for 2 hours. It was awesome! Read More

Great basis to start from. I know it seems obvious, but I thought it might help brand new cooks if the recipe said to crunch up the noodles into little pieces. I do that before I even open the package. A agree, use some sesame oil, rice vinegar, and a little soy sauce, Leave out the salt and use the packet of Asian seasoning that comes with the Ramen. Adds a nice flavor. If it turns out there's a little too much dressing, just add a little more cabbage. Read More

crunchy -sweet tangy and filling. I had to adapt a lot. I used crunchy wont-ton strips honey coated sunflower seeds and regular vinegar. Only since where I live the little grocery does not offer a big variety and I use what I have on hand. I did double the dressing to make sure it was well coated. It turned out delicious and we will make it again. Read More

This is one of my favorite dishes to bring to potlucks. People gobble it up! I like to use sliced instead of slivered almonds and toast them a bit in a frying pan along with the sesame seeds. Read More
