  2. Bake 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, stirring occasionally, until evenly toasted. Remove from heat, and cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl toss together the noodle mixture, bok choy, green onions, chicken, water chestnuts, and snow peas.
  4. Prepare the dressing by blending the oil, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and lemon juice. Pour over salad, and toss to evenly coat. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until chilled.

Awesome salad!!! But please, do not use the 2 tbsp. of butter to toast the nuts & noodles. It is completely unnecessary and simply adds fat and calories. If you have peanut oil, substitute it for the vegetable oil too. It has a more complementary flavor for this recipe. Also, this salad is really good without chicken as well. I served it as a side dish to roasted chicken instead of tossing the chicken in it. I used less of the dressing this way, which cut down on fat and calories too. Overall, great recipe!

The salad was great but the dressing was not to our taste. It also seemed like way too much dresssing for this amount of salad.

Very good salad Xing Jin (cool name)! I changed it up a bit but with really good results. Instead of using bok choy, I used a package of pre-shredded cabbage, a handful of bean sprouts in place of the snow peas and slivered almonds instead of the sunflower seeds. I added a splash of sesame oil to the dressing for extra flavor. The dressing was really good. I only used 1/4 cup of oil and that seemed ample enough. Mine did get a little soggy after sitting a while so I suggest using the dressing over individual servings if you don't plan on eating it all in one sitting. Will pass this one on.

WOW! This dish is delish! I needed it to be especially easy and quick, so I used fully cooked rotisserie chicken from my supermarket deli and cut it up while the noodles and nuts were cooking. Instead of a 1/4 Cup sugar, I only used 2 TBS. and it was just right. I also added about a cup of shredded coleslaw. Adding 1/4 Cup each of sesame and peanut oil, instead of 1/2 Cup vegetable oil, made the dressing very authentic. My husband loved it. I'll be making this again. Thanks! :)

This salad was unique and delicious! I didn't care for the bok choy idea, so I used shredded Nappa cabbage. Eliminated the melted butter and used 1t sesame oil for a more authentic taste. Yum! Thanks Xing Jin.

I just served this salad at a potluck and everyone loved it. I substituted pre-shredded cabbage and carrots which made it faster and slivered almonds for the pine nuts (a little cheaper). It was very crunchy and the dressing made it tangy!!

Soooo Tasty! Uses a combination of napa and bokchoy for the greens and added packaged slivered carrots. Reduced the oil to 1/4 cup for the six serving recipe and toasted the noodles without any butter. Was wonderful and lower in fat.

This is a delicious, more "authentic" ramen salad recipe. However, the flavors tend to weaken quickly, and it isn't nearly as tasty the next day. My solution? Eat it all and don't save the leftovers.
