*Cold Ramen Salad (Make a day ahead)

Submitted by: PRNCSSPTCHWRK

Introduction

Before you start: This recipe needs the night to marinate.
Kids, caterers and college students just can't get enough of these curly, slurpy, yummy noodles!
In this addictive salad the noodles are used uncooked then left overnight to absorb the dressing made with their spice packets.
The sodium is still out of hand in this recipe but I tried to make everything as raw and healthy as possible other than that.
The Birch Sugar or Xylitol in this recipe is a sugar substitute. It works 1:1 ratio as sugar and is safe for people but not for doggies (like chocolate).
*I'm thinking of adding edamame to the mix as well. I will update after I try it.

Directions

First off, before you open the bags: Pound the ramen noodle packets until the noodles are in little pieces (not dust but not chunks either).
****

Measure your oil and vinegar 1/2 & 1/2.
Add a teaspoon each of Birch Sugar and Raw Cane Sugar.
(The cane sugar leaves a caramel-ish molasses taste).
Pour in the 2 spice packets saved from the ramen.
**Mix these well until the spice packet stuff dissolves**

Finely shred the cabbage into a heap in your large bowl.
Mix in the broken noodles.
Thinly slice then chop the shallots.
