Fresh Summer Salads – Perfect For Picnic Or at the Beach – Ramen Noodles Salad

February 7, 2011

Have you tried eating ramen noodles? If not, do you know what it is..? It is a thinner version of regular noodles (as far as I know; there more be more differences between ramen and “usual”). I went to japan, and tried ramen noodles,and fell in love with them. It is, simply put, very cheap and very tasty and very simple-to-make food. What more could you ask for..? In my opinion, not much.

I thought, in this article, I would present a slightly different – at least I think it is – way of making a ramen noodles dish. This way of doing it involves cooking the noodles for 1 to 1.5 minutes less than usually; in other words 1.5 or 2 minutes rather than the usual three.

I do this because I like my noodles to be a little al dente; meaning not too soft. The taste might not change too much but when it comes to something you have in your salad it is good to have it not being too soft.

It is a good idea to break the noodles up into smaller pieces beforeyou add them to the boiling water.

The ingredients for this recipe areas follows:
one package, with the size of 8oz, coleslaw mix
2chopped green onions
1 sliced celery stick
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds
1/2 chopped ell pepper
1grated carrot
1 package ramen noodles

For the dressing, these are the ingredients:
Vinegar – 1/4 cup
salt- 1/2 teaspoon
Pepper – 1/2 teaspoon
Salad oil

– 1/2 cup
Sugar – 1 teaspoon
Ramen noodle flavouring from the package, which is optional – 1-2 pinches

You do the ramen noodles salad the following way: Mix together everything but the dressing and noodles into a large bowl. After that,add all dressing ingredients into another bowl and whisk enough to make them blended. Put the dressing into the salad.

Last, but definitely not least, it is time to cook the noodles. You crumble the dry noodles and put them into water for 2 minutes or so.When done, put them in a colander to be drained – and then rinse with cold water. Last, but not least, mix everything together – then cover and refrigerate.
