Excellent salad; my husband and I really liked it. It was a bit sweet for my taste but my husband liked it. I added extra vinegar to suit my taste. It tasted even better the next day, but the ramen noodles were a little soft. You might want to try making this early in the day to marinate and then add the noodles just before serving.

Per other reviewers I cut back on sugar because we don't like sweet salads. I followed the rest of the recipe and it was really bland. I added 3 more tablespoons of rice vinegar, more pepper, and 1 T. of garlic powder. Mixed again and was vastly improved...but still lacks something.

Excellent for a quick salad to take to pot lucks or parties. I have tried a few and this has been a hit everytime. I would recommend this recipe to anyone of my friends or family.

I really enjoyed this today for lunch. I omitted the sugar and added a few splashes of soy sauce. Cabbage is now considered one of the top ten healthiest foods, so I was very pleased that I could incorporate this into my diet so deliciously. Thanks!

Very good, quick recipe. First time I shredded, now I use a bag of cole slaw mix, it already has some carrots in it,I add some if time. I Just cut back on the oil a little and my 5 year old ate it up. Thanks for the recipe. Ive made it 3x already it satisfies the munchies and has the crunch I like.

I make this salad for potlucks or family functions. It's great! Everyone loves it :) However, it must be eaten the first day because like any salad, it gets soggy.
