Although I do NOT condone the consumption of ramen noodles, when I saw this recipe on Paula Deen's show, I simply had to try it!! I thought this dish was a lot of fun, and had great flavor. Best 8 cents I ever spent!! I use mushroom flavored ramen because there's no "meat" or meat products in the seasoning packets

Great! Was craving this salad and was glad to find the recipe posted. Instead of the seasoning packet I used 2 t of powdered MSG-free beef base, and Paula Deen's House Seasoning Mix to taste. Easy, makes a lot, and everyone loves it. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Really good, a classic salad for bbqs and even my little cousins liked it! I make this whenever I don't know what to do with extra cabbage.
