Today’s recipe is super yummy and the dressing can be used on more than this salad! This is a great dish to take to a work carry in or any potluck that requires you to bring food. It’s super easy and relatively inexpensive to make. And did I mention how good it is!?
Chinese Noodle Salad
Orignially posted on Yummly.com
1/8 c rice vinegar (make sure to use rice vinegar, it has more of a sweet flavor than regular vinegar)
1/8 c sugar
1/8 c oil (vegetable, olive or grapeseed – which is what I used)
2 pkg raman noodles (need 1/2 pkg of seasoning)
1 head romaine lettuce (chopped)
20 oz mandarin orange segments (drained)
1/2 c slivered almonds
1. In a microwave safe bowl, mix together vinegar, sugar and oil. Microwave on high until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Add 1/2 pkg of season from the ramen noodles and mix well. Set aside to cool.
2. Crush ramen noodles in the packages. Pour into dressing mixture from step 1.
3. In a salad bowl, toss romaine lettuce with oranges, almonds and salad dressing.
This dish is so yummy, I’m getting hungry for it just typing it out! When I made this, I got creative and also adding cut up strawberries and some blueberries. You could add chopped chicken for a complete meal.
The dressing is so lightly and lovely, you will probably want to use it in other salads!! I put 1/8 c of the dressing ingredients because the recipe originally called for 1/2 c each but that made WAY to much for this recipe. If you want extra dressing, up the amounts to 1/4 or 1/2 c and use a full packet of the ramen noodle seasoning.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did, it’s delish!!
