Add bite to a simple salad by crumbling uncooked ramen noodles over bok choy, a Chinese white cabbage. A cider vinegar and soy sauce drizzle make the salad a unique and flavorful alternative to the traditional starter salad.
2 (3-ounce) packages ramen noodle soup mix
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
3 tablespoons slivered almonds, chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 bok choy, shredded
6 green onions, chopped
How to Make It
Remove flavor packets from soup mix; reserve for another use. Crumble noodles.
Combine noodles, sunflower seeds, and almonds. Spread on a 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan.
Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown; set aside.
Bring sugar and next 3 ingredients to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat; cool.
Place bok choy and green onions in a large bowl. Drizzle with sugar mixture. Add ramen noodle mixture, tossing well. Serve immediately.
I just get sick of eating and cooking the same old food day in and day out. This is a unique salad for me since I just tried bok choy for the first time when making this salad. I really think it is very delicious not time consuming at all. If u are looking for something different this fits the bill.
Just made this for the first time tonight. Yummy. I really liked it. I only used one pkg. of the noodles and cut the dressing in half, as we do not like our salads saturated. It was plenty to dress the salad. I am looking forward to making this salad for a luncheon I am planning. I know this will go over in a big way.
If you've never tried bok choy, this is a great way to introduce yourself! This has become one of my husband's favorite salad recipes and he's not a huge salad fan. I only add one package of ramen noodles and I usually half the dressing recipe as well. One head of bok choy just doesn't go that far (could be because I cut off most of the white part). If you plan to have leftovers, don't toss all the salad with the dressing. Reserve each separately. Great to serve with Asian-inspired meals.
