I make a similar salad using bok choy or napa cabbage. I haven't tried this recipe yet but I already know it will be delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the ramen noodles in a bag and crush them with a rolling pin while melting butter in a large skillet over low/medium heat.
  2. Add the crushed noodles and slivered almonds to the skillet and sauté, stirring occasionally (keep temperature at low/medium heat).
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
  4. Place the shredded broccoli into bowl and toss with the noodles, almonds, and sunflower seeds.
  5. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat. Garnish with chopped green onions.

I liked this, but not sure if I'd make it again because the rest of the family didn't care for it.

Wow! This was a great change from our normal coleslaw - cabbage salad. Made a great side and kept nicely in the fridge, if you keep the noodles separate that is. I just mix them in on my plate so that I can enjoy the great crunch every time. I lightened this up bc I am on a diet and this recipe made doing that very easy! I did not realize I was out of almonds when I went to make this so those were omitted- sorry! I omitted the butter all together and toasted the seeds and noodles in the microwave- a secret my aunt shared with me. Just pop them in the mw and toast 30 seconds at a time- shake and repeat til done to your liking. They then release a natural oil but you could spray with a cooking oil if you like. The cider vinegar gives a great tang to the dressing! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

We loved this salad. The textures are fantastic and the flavour is amazing. Easy to make to boot. I halved it this time but will make the full recipe next time. This would be great to pack in a lunchbox! Thanks!
