    I made this yesterday for a party. The lettuces and colored peppers at the grocery happened to be quite large so the salad turned out HUGE. Not that I'm complaining; it was DELICIOUS and a great hit. I took the advice of others and cut the sugar back to half a cup, and I also cut back on the butter a bit for stir-frying the noodle mix and it worked just fine. Oh, and I used two green bell peppers instead of just one. A great recipe and we definitely won't be waiting for a party to make it again.

    As promised this is a pretty salad and I thought the crunchy topping awesome. What a great use for ramen noodles! I found the dressing a little lacking in mustard flavor, but I reduced the amounts to make a salad for 4. It was overly sweet, but definitely worth trying again because we loved the salad & topping. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    Just made this for a large casual dinner party. I must admit, I was hesitant to purchase the ramen noodles, but went for it none the less and it added a nice crunch and extra flavour (I'll continue to look for a healthier alternative in that respect). I doubled the recipe and used olive oil and veg ramen and about 1/2 as much sugar as in the recipe. It was a hit and there were NO leftovers!!! Thanks!

    This was a beautiful and yummy salad! I made it some time back and actually have photos - somewhere - and when I find them, I'll post. Thanks, Kelly.

    Great salad. Fantastic colours from the bell peppers, crunch from the noodles and sweetness from the cranberries and the mustard dressing. A simple salad with great flavours. I used gluten-free noodles to make the salad suitable for my diet. This salad was a good chance for me to use my new V-slicer. Thanks for a great recipe :)
