The Other Ramen Noodle Chicken Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

Sick and tired of the same old Ramen noodle chicken salad? This one is very different - it contains fruit and no cabbage. This does not keep long, so plan to eat this the same day. Adapted from Best of the Best from Colorado.

i made this as directed except i substituted shrimp ramen noodles and cooked shrimp for the chicken. i loved the combo of the noodles, fruit, nuts and shrimp. however i found the dressing to be very salty, which is a problem i find in all the seasoning packets with all flavors of ramen noodles. i only used half a packet because of this, but next time i will eliminate it totally and just use a dash of soy sauce instead. i'm attempting to post a photo.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook noodles without adding the seasonings or oil that come with the package (reserve those), otherwise following the package directions.
  2. Rinse cooked noodles with cold water until cold and drain well.
  3. Add the oil from the noodle package (or drizzle with 1-2 tsp sesame oil if your doesn't come with oil).
  4. Be careful- sometimes the oil that comes with the ramen is hot chili oil; if so use sesame oil instead.
  5. Chill noodles while preparing the dressing.
  6. Mix together lemon juice, canola oil, the dry seasoning packet from the Ramen soup, and the sugar.
  7. Mix together the chilled noodles, fruit, chives, and chicken.
  8. Add dressing and toss to coat.
  9. Stir in nuts or just sprinkle over each serving.
