  • 1/2 cup green onion, thinly sliced

  3. Pour dressing over the vegetables, mix very well and refrigerate for an hour.

  4. Once ready to serve, mix in the ramen noodles.

Omigosh this sounds so flavorful and I love how light and full of texture it is...but I'm curious and have to ask, is it ok to eat ramen noodles raw like that? Maybe if they were cooked then baked to give that crunch could be an if you went that route you could season them to give another element of flavor. I actually love vegetables but if you've got meat eaters in your family...chicken, tuna, or salmon would make this super hearty and put a smile on their face at the same time!

Cilantro, water chestnuts, ramen noodles. Very much Asian. I'm Asian and no doubt that I like the ingredients in this dish. I want to eat this in a restaurant but I also want to try to do this from scratch. Looks so yummy.

This going to be my new go-to lunch!
