Excellent salad; my husband and I really liked it. It was a bit sweet for my taste but my husband liked it. I added extra vinegar to suit my taste. It tasted even better the next day but the ramen noodles were a little soft. You might want to try making this early in the day to marinate and then add the noodles just before serving. Read More

Per other reviewers I cut back on sugar because we don't like sweet salads. I followed the rest of the recipe and it was really bland. I added 3 more tablespoons of rice vinegar more pepper and 1 T. of garlic powder. Mixed again and was vastly improved...but still lacks something. Read More

I really enjoyed this today for lunch. I omitted the sugar and added a few splashes of soy sauce. Cabbage is now considered one of the top ten healthiest foods so I was very pleased that I could incorporate this into my diet so deliciously. Thanks! Read More

Very good quick recipe. First time I shredded now I use a bag of cole slaw mix it already has some carrots in it I add some if time. I Just cut back on the oil a little and my 5 year old ate it up. Thanks for the recipe. Ive made it 3x already it satisfies the munchies and has the crunch I like. Read More

This is a staple at all family gatherings only we use coleslaw mix in place of the carrots & cabbage and cashews or sunflower nuts in place of the sesame seeds. We actually like it better the next day even though the noodles get soft. Read More

v. good! my husband won't try it though b/c he says it smells too vinegary. me i can sip vinegar so this was really up my alley. perfect for a summer sunday like today. (a few hours later) i decided this salad was a little sweet! ended up adding more vinegar and will possibly go back and add some green onions. Read More
