This came together quickly and the sesame oil gives it a nice flavor (I added a touch more than a tsp). I was concerned when I toasted the noodles/seeds that the noodles weren't crisping but they turned out just fine as they cooled. I found the pineapple was a bit much for me so I'd dice it a bit smaller if I make this again. This keeps well just keep the noodles/seeds separate and add at service. I used one package of beef and one package of shrimp ramen. THANKS for the recipe! Read More

Delicious! We liked the dressing but there was more than necessary. Also used only one package of ramen and mandarin oranges in place of pineapple. We will repeat for sure! Thank you! Read More
