    Nothing tastes better with grilled meats or picnic spreads than a refreshing salad. This tart and tangy Ramen Broccoli Slaw is perfect for outdoor entertaining. Is ramen the healthiest ingredient in the world? No, but this slaw is dairy and egg free, dressed with a vinaigrette instead of mayo.

    Ingredients

    • Broccoli/carrot slaw: I use a pre-packaged slaw mix from the grocery store that can be dressed up however you want.
    • Toasted almonds: Toasting almonds in a dry pan releases natural oils in the nut and enhances the flavor.
    • Ramen: The raw noodles add a satisfying crunch while the chicken flavor packet helps to season the slaw.
    • Scallions: Also called green onions, they have a mild, somewhat sweet onion flavor.
    • White vinegar: Tart, acidic flavor that is bitter on its own, but pairs wonderfully with other ingredients to make delicious dressings and sauce.
    • Canola oil: Pretty neutral in flavor, it blends well with the vinegar and seasoning to dress the slaw.
    • Sugar: Balancing the tartness of the vinegar and the saltiness of the ramen flavoring.

    1. hi again Liz,
      i adore anything crunchy and have had this slaw from TJs a few times, but usually make the salad as described on the package! i’m anxious to try yours, but am perplexed at your use of the seasoning in the ramen pkg which is usually just a bunch of nasty ingredients, plus msg..urgh!
      please correct me if theyve changed and i’m wrong!
      thx again:): Kelli

      1. You are right, but depending on the brand of ramen you use, I don’t believe they all have MSG. I understand the concern, but all things in moderation and it’s still chalk full of broccoli and cabbage!
