I made a few changes that made this wonderful. First when making the dressing, I used only 1/3 cup sugar. It is plenty. If you want to use Splenda to make it sugar free that would work as well. I will probably try that next time. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Instead of the Chicken Ramen Noodles, I used Oriental. This flavor seems to compliment this recipe more so. One last change I made to the dressing was adding the packet of orienal seasoning mix to the actual dressing and not the nut mix. This makes it much more flavorful. When I sauteed the nut mix I only used 1/4 cup butter. Just trying to cut back on the fat and it works! My kids love this!
This was a very tasty recipe... but I would delete the soy sauce. I substituted teriyaki and I think it was too overpowering. I think soy sauce would've been too. Otherwise, I think it was good. I also added craisins and they gave it a nice touch.
I just made this and it is wonderful. I would give it a ten if I could! I do have some tips that I hope will help-break the noodles up into small pieces so they toast evenly, make sure the sugar is well blended into the dressing ingredients, add the dressing a little at a time to the salad mixing well after each addition and make this in a very large bowl. I did toast the nuts separately and advise that you wait until the nuts and noodles are cool before adding them to the slaw.
Loved it, but I made some changes that we delightful.
Too lazy to prep broccoli, so I used broccoli slaw.
Cut sugar to 1/3 cup on advice of other reviewers.
Substituted cashews and pistachios because I didn't have almonds and sunflower seeds.
Added about 1 c. of sliced grapes (someone else did this, and it sounded good...could have cut sugar even more).
Took it to a church meal and got rave reviews, and I'm ready to make up a batch for another event this weekend.
Love it, and so easy...
LOVE this salad!! I made this yesterday along with "The Best Baked Chicken" for a cookout. Both this salad and the chicken were the hits of the cookout and had no leftovers!! I switched it up a bit. I had to double the recipe for the amount of people at the cookout, so instead of broccoli I used 2 bags of Broccoli Slaw and 1 bag of cole slaw. I also added a splash of balsamic vinegar to the dressing for a little kick. I will be making this for years!!!
Unique and yummy-like a crispy asian coleslaw! Made it for the 4th of July and it really stands out from blah traditional pasta salad/potato salad/coleslaw. After reading all the reviews, this is what I did:I used the oriental flavored noodles, and also only put 1/2 of 1 flavor packet on the noodles and almonds as they cooked; the rest I put into the dressing. I also used a little less than 1/3 cup of sugar and I thought it was just sweet enough. Couldn't find unsalted sunflower seeds, so I used about 1/2 cup of seasame seeds instead. I substituted about 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar in the 1/4 cup of cider vinegar, and I used less than half of a small head of red and green cabbage, and maybe less than half a cup of shredded carrots instead of bagged coleslaw. Everyone loved it and have already requested that I make it for future get togethers.
I've been looking for this recipe forever!
you definitely do not need all that butter. I used 1/2 and probably could have cut down more (don't need any butter for the nuts but not sure about the noodles. next time I might do them separate to save on calories). I used evoo in dressing and also used 1/2 of that. I don't think you need that much sugar either. I would even add more broccoli next time - cut it up really small. it was yummy. used oriental raman noodles and it was good- chicken would be good too I think. thanks!
