    Delicious and simple to make

    Kathy Thompson from Charlotte, NC

    If I have made this salad once, I have made it 100 times. Everytime we have a holiday dinner, my kids want this salad. I also make and keep the noodles and almonds separate in containers and take it for lunch several times in a week. Best salad around.

    Oriental Ramen Salad Plus!

    Dee Harvey from WA

    Easy to make. We substitued finely shredded cabbage and we've added baked, chunked chicken or turkey breast. This is a great meal for hot summer days or excellent accompaniment on a party buffet table.

    A NEW SUMMER SALAD FAVORITE

    Pamela McCandless from Auburn, IN

    A wonderful summer salad to add to the menu. This is very nice, flavorful, with a very nice creamy dressing. We did want a little more zip, tang to the dressing so I added about 10 drops of Asian Hot Oil when blending the dressing. This gave it the perfect zing we were looking for. So if you like just a little more pizzaz to your meal try that. It is available at all major and Asian markets. Wonderful at room temperature or cold if made ahead!

    Outstanding for summer

    Colleen Sproul from Dayton, WA

    I have made this for several summer parties and actually add diced and cooled leftover chicken breast to the salad as I mix it. Everyone raves about it and asks for the recipe! A hit no matter where I take it! Also try using bagged coleslaw mix in place of the salad greens and a teaspoon of sugar or artificial sweetener to the dressing as it is blended. Another little tweak that is great!

    Oriental Ramen Salad

    RUTH PENDERGRASS from Littleton, CO

    We thought this salad was great! I also added chicken, tomatoes, shredded carrots and radishes to the greens and threw in about 1/4 cup of sesame seeds with the almonds and noodles. It made a fantastic salad for our dinner on a hot summer Denver day.

    Oriental Ramen Salad

    D Dale from MILFORD, MI

    This was pretty good, never thought about using salad (lettuce) in this recipe before I've always just used the coleslaw but this was a refreshingly nice change!

  •  Star(s)

    SO Good!

    JANICE GAREY from Terre Haute, IN

    This is almost the same recipe my m-i-l used to make when she visited. I lost the recipe and was so glad to see it again. It's even better than I remember, I think it's the browning of the noodles and almonds in the butter that does it. I could make a meal out of it!

    To die for!

    KIMBERLY RIDDLE from Whitehouse, TX

    This stuff is sooo good. Everyone I have made it for has raved about it. It is amazingly good. Kids will even like it too. Delicious!

    Yum Yum Yum

    Karlynn from

    It was nice and different. I just served the dressing one the side so we could save the salad if it didn't get eatten. It was very good. We ran out of salad before the dressing, so we saved the dressing and have put it on many different meals. Chicken, Fish, Zucchini, and other salads. It was a very easy recipe and very tasty.

  •  Star(s)

    Love it!

    CJ from

    My husband found this recipe and we love it! We add grilled chicken and mandarin oranges to kick it up a notch. Love to serve it to our vegetarian friends.

  •  Star(s)

    Good

    Amy from

    This was good but it was confusing when the recipe asked my to crumble ramen noodles and fry them. Something about the meal did not go well with my tummy though. The meal was liked but said by one family member(with a manly appetite) it should be served as a side dish. To me the meal tasted like a hamburger. Don't try to store it! It gets mushy, and hard to swallow!

    Delicious

    C Wakeling from SILVER SPRINGS, NV

    This was a tasty salad and dressing combo, It has a lot of my favorites, like mandrin oranges and almonds. The noodles were a nice touch. The dressing was very flavorful and creamy. Thank you

  •  Star(s)

    My new favorite salad

    Kimberly from

    I made this salad for our soup party and it was excellent! It's my new favorite salad! I loved the crunchiness of the ramen noodles and the almonds but don't add the dressing until right before you serve (it gets soggy pretty fast, but it still tastes good). I received a lot of compliments also so I will be definitely making it again for another get together.

  •  Star(s)

    Very Good

    Sheri from Montesano,Wa

    This salad was great. The family liked the dressing and the crunch.

    Crunchy and Tasty

    ANDREA HUDSON-TOMBLIN from DULUTH, GA

    I thought the salad was very easy to make. I was skeptical of the dressing, but it is delicious. I'll add chicken and cherry tomatoes next time to make it a bigger salad. Very Tasty!!

    Best Salad Ever!

    Jen from

    This has got to be one of the best salads I have ever eaten. The dressing sounded gross since it calls for evaporated milk, but the taste is awesome!

    I made the salad on a Monday night. The next night my boyfriend asked if we could have it again. Guess it was a big hit

    Easy to prepare and delicious. I have taken this salad to several potluck dinners. Each time I've received positive comments. We added precooked, bite-sized pieces of chicken breast and made it a main course salad, too.

    Wonderfully refreshing

    Donna Wolf from WAUWATOSA, WI

    This salad was wonderful. I took it to a potluck, and it went over very well. The dressing has an excellent taste, and the crunch of the noodles adds to the texture. I used pecans, and fat free Evaporated Milk. I will definitely make this again.

    REALLY good

    brenda frymire from tracy, CA

    I'm not big on trying new things and I wasn't sure about the combination of ingredients. But it was just wonderful. It's now my favorite. It does take more prep work...but it's worth it!

    SURPRIZINGLY VERY GOOD. ADDED SOME STEAMED FRENCH CUT GREEN BEANS. GREAT SIDE DISH. GREAT LOW CALORIE DISH.

    Excellent

    Anna from

    The salad was a big hit in our family. I doubled the noodles and used sesame seeds instead and it still was fabulous. Our lettuce was a bit bitter and the dressing covered the taste nicely so no one could taste the bitterness.

    A Keeper!

    Cathy Newcomb from Cedar Rapids, Iowa

    We absolutely love this salad. My husband always hates to try new dishes but was glad we tried this one. He even requests it. I add a package of grilled chicken breast strips and I only use one pkg. of salad. We thought it was a little dry with 2 packages of salad.

    I LOVED IT!

    Ana Yanez from Phoenix, AZ

    When I first read this recipe, I questioned putting in the evaporated milk but I was happily surprised. This was a really easy recipe. I had most of the ingredients in the cupboard already (including the milk)! I added some cooked, diced chicken and made it a meal. Try it! You'll love it!

  •  Star(s)

    Very Satisfying

    Jennifer Smith from Allendale, NJ

    I made this sald and I was very satisfied. It was filling and tasty, and you can add any thing you like to make it even yummier. I put some artichoke hearts in mine, with celery, shredded carrots and shredded cheese. It was great. In addition, when I made the salad, I realized that I did not have the evaporated milk, so I left it out and the dressing was great! I will make it again and have recommended it to people I work with.

    progressive dinner

    KATE LENKIEWICZ from Grand Rapids, MI

    Every year 4-6 couples get together for a dinner. This year my assignment was salad and I made Oriental Ramen Salad. It was such a hit with all the couples that I had to give each of them this recipe! Everyone then made the salad for their Easter dinners and more members of the families asked for the recipe! To me, that is proof positive that the recipe is a success!

    Great meal for people with braces

    Rebecca Johnson from APO, NY

    I love this as a meal with chicken added to it - it is quick and simple very easy to make. I also love it because when made with fat-free carnation it is very nutritious. The best though is that I have braces so it is good for you and easy on the mouth heheehe.
