Have you ever had Ramen Noodle Salad? I have to admit I thought it sounded a little strange when someone brought it to a friend’s barbecue but after I took that first bite I was sold! Ramen Noodle Salad is somewhere between a slaw and a pasta salad…only the pasta is raw, and crunchy, and totally addictive! The sauce is salty, and sweet, and tangy all at once. It brings the whole salad together. This is the salad you have to make for your next cookout!

Ramen Noodle Salad makes an awesome potluck side dish because it not only tastes amazing it’s also super simple to make. I can grab everything I need for the recipe on my weekly trip to Food Lion. Food Lion makes it so easy for me to get in and out in no time. I use the Food Lion app to check for Food Lion MVP Digital Coupons and weekly specials, and make my grocery list, then I sort my list by aisle (I love that!) and I head to Food Lion to shop. My store has a great selection of fresh veggies so I can always find what I need and with the help of the app I can get through my shopping list really quickly! The best part is, with just a scan of my MVP card during checkout I can earn rewards through Food Lion’s Shop and Earn program that help me save money on products I love. Food Lion has really done a great job of turning what used to be a chore into an easy errand!

How to make Ramen Noodle Salad

WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE RAMEN NOODLE SALAD:

  • Broccoli Slaw – This is a pre-mixed slaw you can find near the standard cabbage slaw. It is made from broccoli and it’s totally delicious!
  • Broccoli – I like some broccoli florets in my salad too so I buy broccoli crowns and cut them into bite size pieces to mix in the salad.
  • Red Cabbage – This is optional, some people skip it, some slaw mixes may already include it. I love the pop of color so I always add a little extra to my Ramen Noodle Salad. 
  • Ramen packets – Obviously the most important part! Make sure you save the flavor packets that come in these as they will be used to give the dressing lots of extra flavor!
  • Sunflower seeds – Yum!! Sunflower seeds add a slightly different texture and I love their flavor. 
  • Green onions – A little extra color and flavor for the salad. 
  • Olive Oil – Better quality = better salad!
  • Rice Wine Vinegar – If you can’t find rice wine vinegar, or don’t want to buy something extra you can substitute red wine vinegar, or even apple cider vinegar.
  • Soy Sauce – Soy sauce adds that delicious salty flavor to the dressing.
  • Sugar – This balances out the soy sauce and vinegar.
  • Sesame Seeds – They add a little flavor and a lot of drama. I even managed to find black sesame seeds. I love the look!

HOW TO MAKE RAMEN NOODLE SALAD:

  1. Place the broccoli slaw, broccoli florets, red cabbage, Ramen noodles (set seasoning packets to the side for the dressing), sunflower seeds, and green onions in a bowl and toss together.
  2. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss until fully coated.
  3. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  4. Cover tightly and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
