This is my favorite of all the Oriental slaws out there...just a little different in the dressing than others! I have to make this for all the BBQs!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine oil, vinegar, sugar and seasoning packets from Ramen to make dressing.
  2. Toast the almonds and sesame seeds in dry pan.
  3. Mix the cabbage, onions and ramen noodles in large bowl.
  4. Toss with dressing and nuts.
  5. Let set in fridge to meld flavors.
  6. NOTES: If you prefer your noodles crunchy, add right before serving.
  7. Toss again before serving, as the dressing settles to the bottom.
  8. Add chicken to make this a main dish salad.

Great recipe! I used a bag of pre-made slaw, the kind that has carrot pieces in it, but I should have paid closer attention because my bag was only 16 oz, and this recipe calls for 24 mine was quite saucy! One bit of time I will toast my almonds and sesame seeds separately. Will try to get pic up soon :)~ Thanks so much for a different and delicious salad!

I love this recipe. I substitute sunflower seeds for the sesame seeds and I toast the noodles as well. As long as you wait to add the dressing right before serving it turns out perfect every time :)

The flavors of this coleslaw were perfect! Exactly what I was looking for! I went to a picnic last week where a friend of mine served something similar and I knew I needed to learn how to make this. I added the ramen noodles right before serving to keep it crunchy. Made for ZWT6 LOONEY SPOON PHOODIES! :D
