Chinese Noodle Salad

Recipe by  

"I didn't like this the first few times I tried it but now I love it! It's got a tangy taste and goes well with Chinese food or sandwiches. Leftovers are softer but great as a snack the next day."

I make this salad with red onion slices and mix the seasoning packets with the salad dressing.

I wasn’t overly thrilled with this recipe. I found it very oily. My partner loved the crunch vs mandarin mix so we'll likely do it again but cut the oil in half!

I have packed this salad in my husband's lunchbag twice and he loves it. The dressing and ramen noodles are in seperate containers for him to add when he is ready to eat. I usually add a touch more sugar and vinegar than oil. It will be a family favorite I am sure.

Switched out Rice for Balsamic Vinegar; doubled the vinegar, oil, and sugar; dropped the almonds and oranges because they weren't on hand. SO GOOD!

Very tasty salad! I added shrimp and substituted chopped peanuts for slivered almonds and it was really good!

I've made similar salads but have added soy sauce to the dressing. I like the idea of using the seasoning packet from the ramen noodles because then I don't have to waste it!

loved this. I left out the oranges but I think you need them for the sweet savory flavor. I also made this at my sisters house with a different brand of rice vinigar. It changed the taste drasticaly. just be sure that you are using a good quality rice vingar.
