What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Home Cooking: Asian Noodle Salad! Not only does this dish make a stunning presentation of color, it also boasts a crunchy taste of the Orient. The sesame and ginger dressing is so yummy, you’ll find yourself making excuses to eat this salad every week.
ASIAN NOODLE SALAD
1 package ramen noodle soup mix, any flavor
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup almonds, sliced
1 pound of shredded broccoli and carrot slaw mix
3/4 cup roasted Cardini’s Gourmet Asian Sesame Dressing*
2 green onions, sliced
Melt butter in a medium skillet over low heat. Remove noodles from soup mix. Discard seasoning mix. Break up uncooked noodles. Add to the skillet, along with the almonds. Stir to combine and brown until slightly toasted and brown. Do not burn. Remove from heat. In a large bowl add broccoli/carrot slaw and the noodle/almond mixture. Pour salad dressing over all and toss until combined. Garnish with green onion snips. Serve immediately. Leftovers may be refrigerated but the noodles will lose their crunch.
*I receive no recompense for mentioning Cardini’s Gourmet Asian Sesame Dressing.
