Asian Coleslaw, Ramen Slaw, Crunchy Ramen Slaw. Not a big identity crisis, but there are alternative monickers — as the old movie detectives would say out of the corner of their mouth. For me, the mystery isn’t the name; nor do I wonder whodunit. The mystery is why? Why did someone decided to crunch up a square of uncooked ramen noodles and add it to a coleslaw mixture that already had unusual ingredients like almonds and sunflower seeds? Surely there must be a story behind this! Whatever it is, I am glad they did. Because this is a very good slaw!
Yes, I may have produced a mini rant about vinegar and coleslaw in a previous recipe here. And with good cause, I might add! However, this exceptionally fine flavored slaw tucks that bit of vinegar into a full bodied dressing with such finesse that you won’t notice that it is there. Nor will you recognize the chicken flavor packet. All the dressing ingredients meld together to enhance the crunch and flavor of the salad itself. If taking this somewhere, make the dressing ahead of time and let it set in the refrigerator overnight. However, don’t add it to the salad until mealtime is close or the salad will begin to lose its crunch. I used Maruchan noodles, but whatever brand you choose, make them also a last minute addition before serving. The green onions i used were about the thickness of my index finger. If smaller than that, use four.
In honor of National Salad Month here are a few more salads you might want to try: Sweet Pepper Fiesta Salad, Berry Melon Fruit Cup, Chicken Pasta Salad with Poppyseed Dressing and Caramel Apple Salad.
