Chances are that if you grew up in the Midwest, this salad crossed your path at least a time or two. And we always, always came home with an empty bowl. Nowadays, I still stick with the cole slaw mix organicgreen onions and almonds.
Labor Day weekend always involves some kind of gathering where we grill and eat outside, enjoying the last few moments of summer before the school year kicks into full swing. My kids are actually home this week. Day camp is over and school has not yet started for us.
Asian Ramen Salad is made with beef ramen noodles, cole slaw, sliced almonds, green onions amd mixed together with a delicious sweet and sour dressing. Pour over Ramen noodles and almonds and stir well, making sure the noodles and almonds are thoroughly coated. Plus, I think smaller pieces blend in better with the ramen noodles.
It is ubiquitous. It is my childhood. It is perhaps the best, most-addictive side dish ever created. I suspect it lies somewhere between the crispness of the coleslaw, the toastiness of the almonds, the sweetness of the dressing, and the fact that crumbling uncooked ramen noodles over a dish and then declaring it a salad feels like a bit of a win.
This Ramen noodle cole slaw recipe is a staple at many a summer picnic, cookout and barbecue. The Ramen noodles aren't even cooked - they just add a lovely crunch to this dish. If you don't have oriental flavored Ramen noodles, feel free to use the chicken or beef flavored noodles instead.
