Alix, I forgot all about that recipe. I used to make it soooooooo often years ago, so thanks for the reminder. You're right, it's just the best salad ever!! I often added diced chicken, or shrimp to make it a main dish. This is one of the first things I discovered that a teaspoon of MSG (Accent) hit it right out of the ballpark. I only did that for my own family though, as none of us are sensitive to MSG.

PS I always sprinkled on the crushed ramen over each serving in case there were leftovers.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Hiyashi Chuka is an awesome cold ramen noodle dish. You cannot use ramen from the packaged dry ramen noodle packs, you want to use the good quality fresh chukamen (ramen noodles) from Yakisoba or ramen packs. Recipe is as follows...

Makes 4 servings

  • 4 packages of Chukamen noodles
  • 1/4 lb strips of ham / boiled chicken breasts
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • For Garnish:
  • beni shoga (pickled red ginger)
  • For Dressing:
  • 1/3 cup water / 3 Tbsp Japanese rice vinegar / 2 Tbsp soysauce / 3 Tbsp sugar / 1tsp sesame oil
  • *karashi mustard

Beat eggs in a bowl and add sugar and mix well. Heat some oil in a frying pan and pour about one quarter of the egg mixture over the pan. Spread the egg thinly and fry for one min. Make four thin and round omelets like crepes. Slice the omelets into thin strips. Cut cucumber into thin strips. Boil lots of water in a large pot and add chuka noodles. Boil for a couple minutes. Drain noodles and pour cold water quickly to cool them. Put cold noodles in a plate. Arrange cucumber, ham, and egg strips on the noodles colorfully. Garnish with beni shoga. Pour dressing over noodles just before serving. Put some karashi on the plate if you would like.

I have a ramen noodle salad that is quite fabulous. It is called "crunchy cole slaw" and uses savoy cabbage, scallions, sliced almonds and sesame seeds, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The recipe calls for use of the seasoning packet though. You're call whether you use it.

My wife has it in her cookbook and when she returns late this evening I will translate it (it is in Russian)....I just don't know where her cookbook is. We have had dozens of requests for this. I apologize but will post it here either late tonight or sometime tomorrow.

Ok. Found it on my own which is remarkable since I have lost hidden man syndrome. Can't find anything around here unless my wife hands it to me directly.

1/2 head of savoy or napa cabbabe
4 spring onions chopped
4 Tbs of sesame seeds
1 cup sliced almonds
2 Packages of Ramen noodles chicken flavor
4 Tbs sugar or less depending on taste
6 Tbs apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tps salt
1 tps pepper

Combine chopped cabbage and onions. (not sure what this word means but I think it means "chilled"......my Russian reading is rusty.) Lightly toast sesame seeds and almonds.

Crumble noodles & combine with seeds & almonds.

Combine vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper & flavor packet from Ramen Noodles. Shake well then add olive oil & shake again.

When ready to serve toss cabbage & onions with dressing then add crushed dry noodles, seeds and almonds to taste.

The first time she made this I was reluctant to eat it. But honestly, it is quite delicious. Hope you enjoy.
