    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

    This looks great/ I'm going to make it tonight using chicken. I think I'll add some extra dressing to the kids so they will like it more. Llike the almonds, sunflower, and sesame seed idea... think I will just broil them real quick for crunch and keep them separate so the leftovers wont get soggy - 3/1/09

  • This salad was very easy to make and tasted good. I didn't particularly care for the uncooked Ramen noodles. They didn't taste bad, it was about the texture for me. This is good healthy, lo-cal snack. I'll definitely make this again (but probably without the uncooked noodles). - 2/22/09

  • I just made this but replaced the noodles with slivered almonds which added the crunch...also toasted seasame seeds...used only cabbage, green onion and cilantro..which adds a bit of zest....A low fat asian dressing works out fine though I delute it with just a bit of rice vinegar. - 2/22/09

  • This was pretty good to me. I made it exactly to the recipe. Definately an interesting use of ramen noodles but I didn't like them once they got soft.

  • I chopped up chicken and used lowfat chicken ramen. I used a bag of coleslaw. It was a little dry so I would add a little more next time, but I think a bottle of Light Asian dressing would suffice which is what I will try next time.

  • My tip for the ramen noodles - don't open bag until you pound it lightly with a meat hammer till noodles are broken up. Then break up big chunks with your hands - THEN open the pack. I throw away the seasoning pack. We used to call this Sumi Salad, with almonds and sesame seeds. - 3/30/08
