This light and crunchy salad is excellent with BBQ chicken. This recipe is from my mother-in-law and has been a family favorite for years.

I have been making and eating this salad for years. This is a good recipe to start, but don't be afraid to try other flavors of Raman. Also, try adding more veggies. Broccoli slaw works well alone or with the coleslaw, chop up some celery for more crunch. Diced peppers, cucumber, radishes, etc. I think you get the point. Use whatever you like to eat. The other variable is the vinegar. There are many different flavors of vinegar. If you are like me, you will never eat the same salad twice. Read More

Not sweet enough. Had tried another recipe for this salad and found it much more Asian tasting. The vegetable and topping mixture was very good but the dressing was lacking. Won't make again. Read More

Simple salad to put together, but, very flavorful. The topping of ramen noodles, sesame seeds, & almonds gave it a nice crunch. The only thing I didn't like was that it was slightly oily. Other than that a very tasty salad. Read More

I have made this for years, but I add a can of drained mandarin oranges and one pound of chicken tenders, chopped into bite size and sauteed to make it a meal instead of a side dish. I also use apple cider vinegar vs white and the Oriental Flavor Ramen Noodles vs the Chicken Flavor. Always a hit! Read More

I used rice wine vinegar instead and added some soy sauce. Cut back on the oil as well. Read More
