"I LOOOOVE this in the summer. One of my friend's moms gave this recipe to me about three years ago after I had it at his house. It's really great--especially if you just add the ramen RIGHT before serving it!"
Serving Size: 1 (148 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"I made this with half of a really large head of cabbage - finely shredded, 4 cooked chicken breasts, shredded into large pieces, a handful of baby carrots shredded with the cabbagei n the food processor, and the addition of dark sesame oil (1T) to our double batch of this recipe. I also added 2 cups of fresh sweet peas, just thawed from the freezer. We used the resulting chicken ramen coleslaw to stuff whole wheat mini pita bread halves, and it was a hit with the whole family, adult and children. I found I only had 1/4 cup vinegar so I added the 1/4 cup of lemon juice to the second batch of the dressing, and it was still delicious. A good recipe to adjust to what's in your refrigetator or your garden!"
"I reduced the oil slightly and completely forgot to add the almonds. It was still a hit. In the future, might add chicken breast and julienned carrots as a previous poster suggested. Thanks."
"This is a pot-luck and dinner hit! I alter the recipe by not using sesame seeds or green onions and I use sunflower seeds instead of sliced almonds. I also add diced roasted chicken. Over all, an awesome recipe!"
"Excellent Recipe, You can adjust to your tastes all you want. I add sliced mushrooms with the broccoli slaw & bean sprouts. I usually toss in unsalted sunflower seeds and pepitos (1/4 cup combined) and I use one ramen noodle and mix with crunchy Chow mein noodles for something different. Sometimes I might add some chopped radish or matchstick carrots...but to keep the crunchiness its really not a next day salad."
"This is great! I take it to our workplace luncheons and everyone loves it. Rather than use sesame seeds I add a teaspoon or so of sesame oil. I also reduce the amount of oil to about 1/3 cup to reduce the calories. I also add a small can of drained mandarin oranges."
"I stir fry the noodles in a tad of butter and use oriental flavor ramen. I also use one packet of Splenda instead of sugar. I also like to make enough for leftovers, so I keep some of the salad without noodles, adding them the following day so they don't get soggy. Add chicken or tofu to balance the carbs and protein."
"I really like this! I skipped the almonds because I was out. I used olive oil and a dash of sesame oil. Only used 1 packet of Ramen and it was beef flavor... and for the sugar I used 1 packet of Splenda. For salt I used 3/4 tsp. and 1/8 tsp. for pepper. Thanks!"
"I made this recipe over the weekend for a family reunion. It was great for several reasons; one of which was that since it had no mayonaise, it could sit out in the 107 sun. I also added crisp fried onions on top and added a smidge of sesame oil and mandarin oranges. Everybody loved it. Thanks!"
"One of my husbands traditional thanksgiving dishes in Ramen Coleslaw, I used this recipe and he approved! I used oraganic asian vegetable ramen, added the packets to the dressing, and also added a little thai fish sauce and braggs liquid aminos."
"This was an ok salad. My whole family thought there really wasn't much flavor, and even less the next day. Sorry :("
"Love this in the summer! So refreshing! I made some minor changes, but it really beefed up the flavor: I toasted the noodles, reduced the oil to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame oil to the dressing. Yum! My DH suggested some mandarin oranges for next time. Thank you."
"I brought this to a x-mas party today and everyone loved it. I did toast the broken ramen noodles in the oven and they stayed crisp all day."
"I made a half batch of this to try and use up some cabbage I had (with not much else in the cupboards but Ramen). I'd had versions of it elsewhere and they had been alright, but this one was soooo good! I was literally surprised by how much I liked it and ended up eating almost the whole half-batch by myself throughout the night (oops, lol). I was also skeptical of adding the seasoning packet but it was the perfect touch. I had this with some mandarin oranges over the top and it was great ~ thanks SO much for posting a ramen cabbage recipe I can really get into! :)"
"Really delicious, pretty simple if you follow the directions."
