    I add chopped jicama or waterchestnuts, skip the onion, add raisins and slivered almonds for a topper, plus 1/2 tsp sesame oil.Don't cook the noodles, they soften as you toss. I skip the soy. - 2/17/09

    Most recipes are done to your taste!

    Try using Broccoli Slaw instead of cabbage - just as yummy & comes in pkgs w/shredded carrots &shredded cabbage (along w/the shredded broccoli).

    We add the crunch factor mix (broken up ramen-type noodles, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds) individually. - 8/21/08

    I've made a version of this minus the soup seasoning package. I used Rice Wine Vinegar, and a sugar substitute, added some chopped cooked chicken breast and then added a few drops of seseame oil to the dressing to give it some depth. Its one of my favorite summer salad recipes. - 2/17/09

    I am addicted to this recipe! Its great because you can add so many variations. I usually stir fry a chicken breast in soy sauce and add for a meal- good with toasted almonds or chopped peppers. Instead of the seasoning packet try adding some sesame oil, ginger ,rice vinegar, dash of honey. - 4/20/08

    There are so many versions of this recipe, but all in all, this is a great salad. I use thin pieces of red onion instead of green, great color, and skip the seasoning mix for the dressing....way too much sodium. Also, the sugar substitute for low-cal, I do it all the time!! - 8/21/08

    I make this all of the time with a few slight modifications: I use rice vinegar instead of regular vinegar. I add slivered almonds and toast the almonds and crushed up ramen noodles before adding them to the salad, the toasting adds another layer of flavor and sometimes I add chicken for protein. - 3/26/08

    Very tasty. I'm not a fan of cold noodle salad, so I actually sauteed the cabbage and carrots and cooked the noodles then combined everything, and it made for a great vegetarian dinner dish. - 3/23/09

    You can add shredded carrots for added nutrition and color. In answer to the person who commented that the noodles should be cooked since you don't eat raw pasta - they aren't raw. They're cooked, then dried. It's kind of like eating the chinese noodles you have with chow mein, but not fried. - 3/26/08

    I have made a similiar recipe - but I used the package of cole slaw mix and brown the noodles along with almonds and sesame seeds. I can eat it all day. Do add dressing just a little while before eating so it doesn't get soggy.
    I never thought to add chicken - sounds wonderful. - 2/17/09

    I love this salad! I added toasted almonds and sunflower seeds for added crunch. Used Dole classic cole slaw mix and two packs of oriental flavored ramen noodles and both seasoning packs. Always a hit at pot lucks. - 7/29/08

    This was just okay for me. I've had the less nutritious version of this salad, and this one just wasn't a good enough substitute. I wouldn't make it again without some modifications. - 7/6/08

    This is great. I have made this for several years and taken to potlucks. No one can believe the raw ramen noodles can make this so special. Sometimes I use the prepackaged slaw when I am in a hurry. - 3/26/08

    It was good. I omitted the sugar and also added some finely minced red & green peppers. The ramen noodles add a very pleasant crunch. I will make it again. - 3/29/09

    A friend turned me on to this recipe several years ago. It's delicious & as others have found you can make all kinds of variations based on what you prefer. It's a fun thing to take to a pot luck, too. - 3/29/09
