Crunchy Asian Ramen Noodle Salad
“Chances are that if you grew up in the Midwest, this salad crossed your path at least a time or two. My mom used to make it regularly when we were kids, and brought it along to every potluck, picnic, and church function imaginable. And we always, always came home with an empty bowl. What can I say — people love this salad!
That said, the original version that we made back in the 90s was a little more full of processed ingredients and sugar than I like to eat nowadays. So I gave my mom’s recipe a few modern updates. So since we’re entering the prime of potluck and picnic season, I thought I’d share it with you. Because no matter the decade, I’ve found that people go absolutely nuts for this salad. And it’s downright delicious.”
Just like Ali from Gimme Some Oven, I grew up in the Midwest and am very familiar with this salad. And you’d better believe that whenever I see a recipe for it I’ve gotta try it out because the salad is just so good! This healthier version is a great twist on the classic recipe and one that I’m sure you’ll love.
