    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

    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
