    Does anyone have a recipe for a cold salad that uses the uncooked Ramen noodles?

    I tried looking online, but there were so many, I couldn't figure out which one would be best.

    Soemone asked me to bring it to a party. She said I made it before, and it was delicious. Ha! I don't even remember, so I'd better come up with something good.

    Who has one that's tried and true?

    Thanks!

    Asian Salad:

    1 (3 ounce) package chicken flavored ramen noodles
    1/4 cup butter
    1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted
    1/2 cup blanched slivered almonds
    1 large head napa cabbage, shredded
    6 green onions, chopped
    1 can mandarin oranges
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon sesame oil
    1/8 cup white sugar
    Directions
    Crush noodles, place them in a medium skillet and brown in butter over medium heat. Add almonds and sesame seeds. Stir often to prevent burning. Add seasoning mix from noodles and cool. Toss in a large bowl with cabbage, oranges and onions.
    Prepare the dressing by whisking together the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and sugar. Pour over salad, toss and serve.

    Here is one I use and like.

    CHINESE COLE SLAW

    1/2. oil
    2 tsp. lite soy sauce
    1/2c. sugar
    1/4 c. white vinegar
    1/2 cup oil
    2 pkg. Ramen noodles without seasoning
    2 (2 1/4 oz.) pkg. slivered or sliced almonds
    2 tsp. sesame seeds
    1 (16 oz.) pkg. coleslaw mix OR
    1 sm. head cabbage and two carrots, shredded
    5 green onions, chopped with tops

    Blend very well: oil, soy sauce, sugar, and vinegar. Store in a separate container.

    Break up packages of Ramen noodles and saute in 2 tablespoons oil, stirring constantly so as not to burn. Add almonds and seeds. Keep stirring until mostly brown. Cool and place in a sealed bag or jar until ready to serve.

    When ready to serve, toss coleslaw mix and onions with noodles, nuts and dressing.

    Many thanks to both of you. I think I will try one of them this weekend, and one next, for two seperate occasions.

    They both sound delicious!

    Thanks again!
