Ramen Noodle Salad

When I first saw this salad at a gathering we attended recently, I was not so sure I wanted to try it. It didn't look like something I'd like but I gave it a shot. It was SO GOOD! I went home and searched various sources on-line and came up with this recipe that I felt would best duplicate the one I had tired. It is best eaten right after it's made but you can store leftovers in the fridge for a couple of days.

Ramen Noodle Salad


1 bag of cole slaw mix
3 green onions, diced
1 package Oriental style Ramen noodles, crushed (keep the seasoning)
1/4 c. sesame seeds, toasted
1/4 c. sunflower seeds
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 can mandarin oranges, drained

Dressing (make a day ahead for best flavor)

1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 c. honey
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 package dry seasoning from Ramen noodles
1/4 teaspoon salt

Put Ramen noodles in a bowl and add almonds, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds. Mix greens, noodle mixture and dressing just before serving.

This is one of our favorites, although we don't use the exact same recipe, my version is more pared down (no fruit either). I just dress mine with sugar, oil, vinegar and the seasoning packet. There are so many variations. My sister uses broccoli-slaw in her version.

Your version sounds really good too! I had no idea this recipe even existed but am so glad I found it!

Hi Michelle,

My husband Aunt's make a wonderful Asian Noodle Salad and their quite similar to your recipe. I can't remember what dressing she puts on that makes a little bit creamier.

Well, I'm sure this is really good. One of this days I will share my own recipe for this as well...

Have a nice weekend!

Tin, I'd love your aunt's recipe as well. I can't believe after all these years I had never heard of this salad, it's really so good!
