    Love it!!! And it is one that the rest of the family doesn't so I can put it in individual containers and take to work. However, I do add a little diced chicken for a full meal. - 6/17/08

    Just got this similar recipe from a co-worker and it was very tasty. Used rice vinegar, eliminated soy-sauce and added toasted almonds. Some cilantro would be nice as a garnish! - 4/21/09

    Both my husband and I loved this recipe. Will definitely make it again. Would have given it 5 stars except for the sodium-I aim to find ways to decrease it-but wow-really good. - 3/28/09

    I just realized I forgot to add the ramen seasoning....never missed it and saved the sodium. I agree about the uncooked noodles: after the first day, they get soggy. Better to use almonds/sunflower seeds...or just skip them and call it a slaw. - 7/22/09

    Forget the Ramen noodles and seasoning! I used sesame oil, sesame seeds, a little rice wine, vinegar, ginger and red onions instead of scallions. I was in love with it! Maybe it would be good with the raw ramen but how honky and horrible for you!! Very good "Asian Slaw" nonetheless! - 4/2/11

    This is an awesome recipe!! I always use reduced sodium soy sauce, and leave out the ramen seasonging packet. We do not like leftovers-the noodles get soggy, but there usually isnt any left anyhow. I do also leave out the ramen noodles and add almonds instead, and is very good that way too!! - 1/2/10

    I do something similar using sesame oil instead of olive oil - you can get away with a bit less oil b/c the flavor is so powerful. Also, we use scallions minced very small - and you can offset that with raisins, as others have suggested. Nice filling, fiber-filled meal! - 4/21/09

    This is always a crowd pleaser but working on a low carb version
    First use sweetener vs sugar
    Second let ramen noodles be optional serve separately also give nuts as option
    I don,t always use onion again make optional
    The balance are very low carb i would say under 5 net GM per serving do you ag - 8/7/12

    I have had this recipe many times, but add unsalted sunflower seeds to it,gives it an extra crunch. Its so yummy though, I could eat the whole bowl! Great for large parties! Love the fact that you're getting your veggies, and still eating something tasty. - 5/18/09

  • I have made this, but I started with the slaw, carrots badder mix,
    I recommend beef ramen not noodle.
    Also used brown sugar substitute and added 4 tablespoons sesame seeds or no salt peanuts.
    Every scrap gone every time. - 3/8/14

  • I'm looking at the calories listed and don't see how it could possibly be so high. One of 6 servings cannot be 178. too high. - 8/18/13
