I'll bet Ramen noodles would be good in a salad, but it would need to be boiled with at least some salt first.

I used to just steal the spice packets and throw out the noodles, but I like their flavor too. If I make the soup, I only use 3/4 of the noodles. I like more broth. Sometimes I'll break up a handful of the noodles and add them to chicken soup.

One of my nieces was very proud of the ramen noodle salad she learned to make in Girl Scouts camp. Just shredded lettuce. Dressing of oil, sugar, and rice vinegar. Crumbled up dried ramen noodle, sort of like croutons. Best to eat before the ramen bits start to get soggy.

We do the Killer coleslaw but it uses the flavor package.

1 head of cabbage shredded
3 or 4 green onions chopped
3/4 cup toasted slivered almonds
1/4 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1 or 2 packages crushed ramen noodles

Dressing:

1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 flavor package (or 1 tbsp powdered boullion)
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup EVOO

Whisk dressing and toss over the cabbage, nuts and noodles. Make sure everything is well coated and enjoy!

This is a favorite of ours ...
Cook 4 packs of noodles, drain and set aside.
Make a dressing of oil (1 cup), vinegar (1/2 cup), sugar (4 tbsp) and 2 or 3 of the season packets from the noodles.
In a large bowl, mix together the noodles, a bag of Cole slaw mix and 1 bunch of green onions chopped. Pour the dressing over everything and toss to coat. I let it sit in the bowl, in the fridge, overnight so the dressing gets "in" everything.
My MIL shreds a couple cooked chicken breasts and tosses with everything but you don't have to.

Go ahead, Alix, make me drool. I got myself a drool rag this time.

Copied pasted and printed. Thanks. Looks good. I was looking for something to use the other half of a cabbage. I'll put it on the list now.

I think you should try this one Zhizara, its GREAT with a hearty soup on the side and honestly, you are becoming the soup queen around here I think. I have to admit, I love this stuff leftover for the next couple of days. Not everyone does, but I sure do!
