READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Debs Recipes

This salad has been very popular whenever I've brought it to picnics, potlucks, and barbeques. It travels well and can be prepared a few hours in advance of the party. Be prepared to share this recipe because people Ü will ask for it!

I love and crave this salad for its wonderful flavor. I have been making this for 12 plus years. I have never used coleslaw mix always 4 cups of green garbage. Two packet of chicken ramen noodles and their season packets are added to the dressing that is doubled what you have. I also use slightly more rice wine vinegar and black pepper because I like the Pow it delivers. I have never added scallions or onions of any kind, this I might try some time. I too agree that this salad should sit for at least two hours before it is served but Man it is hard to keep my fork out of it. And Deb you are right I always have at least two ask for this recipe were ever I take it. Thanks for Posting

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (16 ounce) bag coleslaw mix (or 1 medium head cabbage, thinly sliced and chopped)
  • 1 bunch scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles, broken up (Your favorite flavor!)
  • 1 -2 cup diced cooked chicken breast
  • 12 cup canola oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 12 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 12-1 cup toasted slivered almonds


  1. Combine cabbage, scallions, ramen noodles (reserve ramen flavor packet for dressing) and chicken; refrigerate for up to six hours.
  2. Just before serving shake together canola oil, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, and ramen flavor packet; pour dressing over salad and toss; add sesame seeds and almonds; toss until evenly mixed.
  3. NOTE: I like to make the salad and salad dressing seperately a few hours in advance of whatever party I'm going to ~ I just dress the salad at the last minute so that it stays nice and crunchy.
