    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    Asian inspired salad that EVERYONE asks me to bring, make or share. I actually had my voice on TV and won a $320 wok for this recipe! I have updated and modified it to be healthier and easier! Hope you like it! Submitted for World Tour Asian and SW catagories as it is very popular here in TX. NOTE: We never liked the 'leftover' salad as the crunchy parts got soggy except for the almonds until I got the bright idea to add the leftover salad to a tortilla and make it into a wrap. (I amaze myself sometimes! lol) I placed the tortilla/wrapper in a skillet and flipped after the first side was warmed. Laid some sliced sandwich meat -whatever you like- on the warmed side and let the new side warm. Remove from pan and add leftover salad- drain any dressing from it to get it a little drier. Roll up and serve- WOW! Try adding other stuff to it as well. We liked raisins, dried cranberries, shredded carrots, chopped celery etc... Salad recipe can also be found on: greatdayamerica.com

      I served this at my 4th of July picnic and it got RAVE reviews. Everyone was flumoxed about the ingredients and were surprised to see raman in something that tasted so good. A ton of people brought leftovers home with them. The only changes I made were to halve the amount of sesame seeds and use veggie broth instead of the ramen broth to make it fit for the vegetarians.

      This recipe deserves way more than 5 stars! We went back to eat more after dinner and it was even better. My husband asked if we can make it again this weekend. I sliced some roast chicken on the top and it was great. I really do think this is one of the best salads I have ever had. Thank you!!!

      This is a good ramen noodle salad. I'm looking for one with a sweeter dressing, though. I think I would leave out some of the seasoning packet next time because it made it a little bit too salty for my taste. Thanks!
