Asian Ramen Noodle Salad

This is my Mom’s famous salad that is always a request at every holiday gathering. It’s a light salad that is quick to prepare and easy to take along to any get together or holiday party.


  • 1lb Coleslaw Mix
  • 1 cup Almonds
  • 2 packets Chicken Ramen Noodles (lightly crunch the noodles apart before opening the bags)
  • 1 bunch Green Onions (diced)
  • 1 Green Pepper (diced)
  • 1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds
  • 2 packets Chicken Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 6 tablespoons Vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper


1. Combine the coleslaw mix, almonds, crushed ramen noodles, green onion, green pepper, and sunflower seeds into a large salad bowl; toss well.

2. Next, combine the chicken seasoning, olive oil, vinegar, sugar, and pepper together for the salad dressing.

3. 30 minutes before serving, pour just enough of the dressing on the salad to allow it to marinade into the salad mixture, then chill in the refrigerator. Serve the extra dressing on the side for those who might prefer a little more.


  1. Hi there! I”m visiting from a blog hop and thought I’d say hello! You know, a friend of mine made me a salad very similar to that Asian Noodle, in fact it might be almost identical (something her mom cooked too) and I LOVED it. I’m so glad you posted the recipe! YUM!

    I’m your newest follower and would love it if you’d consider dropping by for a visit and following back. Thanks so much and have a wonderful Easter!

  2. This was so delicious! I can’t wait to make it for company (my mom would LOVE it) or the next time I have to bring a salad to someone’s house! Thinking next time we grill chicken it’s going on top of this salad, maybe with a few mandarin oranges thrown in. Thanks for posting the recipe.

    • Ok, now you get to make it with chicken and share! :) That was such a good idea and as much as I’ve had this salad I’ve never thought to throw in a little chicken to make it a complete meal…

  3. We love ramen noodle salad and your recipe looks so yummy! We hope you’ll be back to our “Strut Your Stuff Saturday”. We loved having you! -The Sisters

  5. Hello! I featured this today from my Show & Share party! Thanks for sharing, I appreciate you!

  6. YUM!! Ramen noodle salad is one of my favorites, but I’ve never made it myself. Thanks for sharing at oopsey daisy!

  7. This sounds delicious! Where can I find chicken seasoning?

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Alicia- It’s just the chicken seasoning packets in the Chicken Flavored Ramen Noodles or you can buy a container to Chicken Flavoring/Seasoning at your grocery store; just ask a worker. Enjoy! :)

  8. I make this salad too, however my recipe is from Paula Deen and you know everything is better with butter. Lighly toast the crunched up ramen noodles and the slivered almonds before mixing it together with the cole slaw. Gives it anoher layer of flavor. I use brown sugar and a tiny bit of sesame oil in the dressing with the seasoning packets from the ramen. Try it you will like it.

    This looks and sounds delicious, I think I may try making this and changing it up to omit the chicken seasoning packet as those have msg, high sodium and all sorts of weird artificial things we generally try to avoid.

  10. Oh I love this salad! I used to make it but lost my recipe! I’ll have to save it to try :) new follower of your blog!

  11. What kind of vinegar did you use?
