This healthy Ramen Broccoli Slaw is perfect for entertaining outdoors because there is no mayo to spoil in the sun.
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.
- 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.
How to Make Ramen Broccoli Slaw
Start your Ramen Broccoli Slaw by toasting your sliced almonds in a dry pan.
Then add the toasted almonds to the broccoli/carrot slaw in a large bowl.
Next, freshly slice your scallions and add them to the bowl.
Then take your raw ramen noodle block, and break it up into bite sized pieces.
Next, to begin dressing the slaw, drizzle the white vinegar over the top.
Followed by the canola oil.
Then sprinkle the chicken flavor season packet.
And finish with the sugar.
Toss everything together until the slaw is evenly coated in the dressing.
Serve and enjoy your Ramen Broccoli Slaw!
