    Sharlene~W's Note:

    There is plenty of crunch in this salad from the Napa cabbage, toasted almonds, and dried ramen noodles. If you want a little more zing, sprinkle some crushed red chile peppers. Also try substituting peanuts for the almonds.

      My friend has made this recipe at our work potlucks for years, and it is always the best thing there! She only uses one package of the ramen noodles, and makes the dressing the night before. About 30 minutes before serving, she stirs in the crushed ramen noodles and dressing. This way the noodles are really crunchy!! Trust me, you can't go wrong with this one..

      My family loved this! I used the chile flavor seasoning packet from ramen. I reduced the oil and used half peanut, and half sesame-chile oil. I also reduced the sugar to 2 tablespoons. Very, very, good.

      Excellent! Followed the recipe exactly except I only added 3 tablespoons of sugar. I also added a little Chicken Chili Sauce (3 tbs.) which I had purchased at my local Asian market. I didn't put in as much cilantro as I feel it can overwhelm a dish. I did include the gingerroot. Awesome, will be making this again.
