Chinese Mandarin Cabbage Salad With Ramen Noodles (Vegetarian)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Add in some cooked chicken breast strips also if desired to make this into a main meal.If you don't mind a sweeter dressing then use the amount stated, or reduce by a couple of tablespoons for a less sweeter tasrte, personally I prefer the the sweeter taste! You can use only one package or noodles if desired. Do not add in the dressing until ready to serve the salad!

I made this as a dinner salad last night and it was so yummy! I reduced the servings to 4 and then increased the coleslaw mix and used a full red pepper. DH loved the toasted crunchy ramen noodles and peanuts. I used a full can of mandarin oranges. I loved that this went together so quickly!
