It's never crossed my mind to eat Ramen cold in a salad but it sounds interesting enough to try. I'm not sure how I feel about the clumpy noodles so maybe working some of the oil and vinegar into them might help separate as well as flavor the noodles. The choice of veggies is good but I'd have to shred the cabbage and maybe add some red onion and tomato wedges to liven it up a little.

It really doesn't get any more economical than this, folks! I like to use smoked paprika (otherwise known as papricon in some spice markets) in this recipe, as it adds a whole new dimension of flavor, especially when served alongside grilled meats! This can easily be made vegan by swapping out the cheese for a vegan substitute, or just leaving it out altogether.

Ramen noodles are right up there with the invention of chocolate. In my opinion, anyway, lol! This is a really nice recipe and our whole family enjoyed it. We added a few extra vegetables that we had on hand plus a little chopped fresh garlic and chili. That is what is great about this type of meal, you can add pretty much whatever you have handy.

I like the look of this recipe. Instead of using Ramen noodles I would use glass noodles but that is the only change I would make. I think there must be a nice tanginess to this salad too with the vinegar and mustard. It also sounds like a good idea to use as an accompaniment to burgers or even hot dogs.

How much fun is this recipe? I made some small adjustments, I added onions, used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and I chopped up the ramen noodles after they were cooked to help keep them from balling up. This is a good basic recipe. It is worth giving it a try and tailoring it to your own specific tastes.

We always have packages of ramen noodles around the house, and this is a great alternative to simply cooking up some ramen. I love the fact that everyone who has commented has their own particular spin on this salad. The Italian dressing idea sounds good. I'm partial to the Ken's Sweet Vidalia Onion dressing, and I think I'll use that when I make this up later this week. Some crumbled bacon sprinkled in would also be a tasty touch.

This is an interesting recipe. It reminds me of my cole slaw, cucumber salad, and pasta salad, combined. I would like to try it once as is, but then if the dressing doesn't work out, I'll try it again with Italian dressing.

I am going to try this recipe but I am only going to use one and half packages of ramen noodles. Also, I am going to make my homemade Russian salad dressing.

I use a bottled Supermarket Own-Label 'Low Fat Honey Mustard Dressing' - I think that would go very well with this recipe ............ definitely give it a try D.

The noodles absorbed the dressing and made the noodle salad very dry. Perhaps the recipe could use a different type of noodle like spaghettini.

In mine I use the seasoning packets mixed with apple cider vinegar, add some toasted almond slivers, chicken, green onions...never any left!!!

I found this to be rather bland. I put Italian Dressing on it and that made it a lot better. Next time will put onions in it and only use Italian Dressing.
