I have made this twice now, and it's been a HIT each time. I use 1/3 cup each of olive oil, vinegar & sugar for the dressing and then have added a teaspoon of sesame oil. I've used a combo of Oriental Ramen and Chicken Ramen which has been fine. I can only find dry roasted sunflower seeds, but they have fit well. I toasted the almonds which I think adds some good flavor. Both times I've made this, I put the slaw & green onions in a big bowl, put the nuts & ramen in tupperware, and kept the dressing in a mason jar until I was at the party, then mix it all together when I arrive so the ramen stays crunchy.
This was such an interesting twist on a salad! We all really enjoyed it. I made a couple of changes- I used 1/3 cup each of olive oil, sugar and red wine vinegar. I used Vidalia onion instead of the green because that's all I hand on hand. Thanks for a new family favorite that I'm betting will be even tastier for lunch tomorrow!!
I'll add my review to the many others here. This is delicious, and especially quick and easy to make. I used one reviewer's tip of 1/3 cup of olive oil, sugar and rice vinegar, which was exactly the right amount of dressing. The other thing I did was toast the almonds, which added some great flavor and crunch. It's a favorite, already!
I halved the recipe, quartered the dressing . Great salad. Very quick and easy to do. I did roast the almond, sunflower seeds and ramen noodles at 350 deg for 7 min. and added roasted chicken breast.
We had this salad at my husband's sister's house and husband fell in love with it. I thought it good too so searched for it and found this recipe. This is EXCELLENT!Husband can almost eat the whole salad in one night. Only difference with mine is I toast the almonds in butter and delete the sunflowers seeds. Used white vinegar and to cut the calories, I used Splenda.
I absolutely love this recipe. Everytime I take this to a party I get rave reviews. It's great. For the dressing I use 1/3 C. sugar, 1/3 C. vinegar, and 1/3 C. oil. It's the perfect amount of each.
First time ever making it or eating it. Where has this been all my life? My hubby gave me a solid 10 for this dish. Next time I will use Carly's variations:)
been doing a similar for years, 1/4 cup olive oil & juice of 1 lemon, 1 tbs dijon, 1/2 a chopped cucumber & a container of feta at the end, love this but will try w/nuts
Hi all: I used 1/4 cup canola oil omitted the noodles added a dash of rice wine vinegar and a dash of white vinegar a dash or two of brown sugar along with two small serving boxes of raisins. Delicious. I used two bags of broccoli slaw and plenty of onion, both Vidalia and red, some salt n peppa and a wee bit of sage n rosemary. Mmmmmmm! Healthy too!
