This is one of my favorite salad recipes passed on to me from my friend Pam D. A wonderful light and crunchy salad. Great with seared Ahi tuna.

Made as written except that I only used half of the ramen noodles the recipe called for due to personal preference. There was already a lot of crunch going on and I didn't seen the need to add the extra calories. This was great! I'm not a huge fan of fruit in my salad but I loved it in this recipe. The browned butter really brought all of the flavors together. This one is a keeper! Read More
