Are you thinking of salads and yummy fruit and veggie creations? I sure am. As soon as the weather heats up I am no longer thinking of soups and have greens on the brain. Not sure about you, but I’m a SALAD ADDICT!! I pretty much order salad every time we go out and prefer it over a hamburger. Craziness, perhaps, but it’s just something I LOVE!

Well, this next recipe is a new salad concoction that my mom tried out for us the week of Chinese New Year. We all LOVED it and I hope you love this Asian Ramen Salad too!

We’ve made other versions of this Ramen Noodle Salad, and this was by far one of my favorites! And just a note, be sure to put the dressing on last minute because the noodles get “soggy” after it’s been setting on for awhile. 🙂

Asian Ramen Salad dressing

Just mix and enjoy!

PREP. Place 3 bags of ramen noodles in a large plastic bag and break up.

BAKE. Melt stick of butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Add noodles and almonds to your skillet. Stir and cook until toasted and lightly browned. Spread onto a cookie sheet and let cool.

SEASON + SERVE. In a medium container mix vinegar, oil, sugar and ramen seasoning packets. Close lid tight and shake well. Set aside. Right before serving add coleslaw to a large bowl. Top with noodle mixture and dressing. Mix and serve immediately.

Variations + Tips

Other add-ins:

  • Shredded chicken 
  • Mandarian oranges
  • Edamame 
  • Slice green onion
  • Shredded carrots
  • Add some protein by adding roasted chickpeas, tofu, or shrimp.

To make this salad a bit healthier don’t add in the seasoning packets, this will omit lots of added sodium and gross ingredients. You can also add more veggies like carrots and edamame.

To avoid soggy noodles, mix in the noodles right before serving. The longer the salad is stored the softer the noodles will get and there is nothing that you can do to fix that

  1. We have a similar version of this.. We add a bunch of green onions and skip the butter step. So yummy! I will have to try it this way next time!

  2. I love everything about this salad! Starting to absolute put me in the mood for summer!

  3. Unfortunately, Asain Slaw (which has been my absolute favorite salad since the 1980’s) is extremely high in fat, from the noodles. I’ve been searching for a healthier version, experimenting and tinkering with the ingredients. I was aghast to see that this version has butter added! We tend to think that “salads” are healthy but beware…

  4. This looks delicious!!! Thanks so much for sharing! This may just have to be my lunch today 🙂 Stopping by from Hoyby Crafts.

  5. I’m allergic to the MSG in the seasoning packets! Do you have any ideas on how to make a similar dressing that I would be able to eat?

  6. Love ramien noodle salads! But, the seasoning packets contain a dangerous amount of salt for anyone with high blood pressure.

    The salt content is unhealthy for anyone, really. Wish they would come out with a low sodium version.

  7. 5 stars
    We do not use the butter step either. We also add toasted sunflower kernels and sliced green onion. Let the dressing marinade so the noodles do get soft. Also serve by itself or on lettuce with ranch dressing. So yummy!
