 Growing up this Asian ramen noodle salad was my favorite! I remember my mom would make a bowl of it and my favorite part were the leftovers (if there were any). The longer it sits in the fridge, the more the dressing soaks into the coleslaw and the salad softens up but the flavor is out of this world.

I made a few changes by adding the edamame and toasting the almonds and noodles because I love the texture and color it provides in this salad. I always buy the microwaveable shelled edamame pack and cook it in the microwave. Be sure to let it cool before you add it into the salad.

You don’t have to toast the noodles and almonds but I would highly recommend it. It only takes a few extra minutes but adds such a delicious nutty, toasty flavor to the salad.

Add all the salad ingredients into one bowl and mix the dressing ingredients in a separate bowl, then simply add the dressing to the salad and mix. I like to make this in the morning and let it sit in the fridge all day until dinner. The noodle still stay crunchy but it allows time for all the flavors to come together and for the coleslaw to soften up a bit. 

The leftovers are fabulous the next day so try and save some 🙂

To make this easy I always buy the bag of shredded coleslaw mix and buy a frozen package of shelled edamame. If you can’t find the shelled edamame just use regular edamame and pop out the little green beans inside. 

You can always leave out the edamame as well if you can’t find it, don’t like it, or just don’t want to bother with it. The edamame is just something I have added to this through out the years I’ve been making it. 

I hope you love this one! Perfect for a picnic, potluck, or a great side dish for dinner.

Ingredients

    salad
  • 2 (3 oz) packages Oriental flavored ramen noodles, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 bag (16 oz) coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 bag (8 oz) microwaveable steamable shelled edamame
  • sweet asian vinaigrette
  • 1 seasoning packet from ramen noodles
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Instructions

  • Cook the microwaveable edamame according to package directions. Let cool completely.
  • Spread out the crumbled ramen noodles and the sliced almonds onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 5 minutes. Stir the mixture and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Let cool completely. Watch carefully as this can burn easily.
  • Once ramen noodles & almonds and edamame is cooled combine all salad ingredients into a large bowl and stir together.
  • Combine the vinaigrette ingredients and whisk together. Pour over the salad mix and stir together well.
  • Store in the fridge until ready to eat. Can be eaten right away or eaten after a couple of hours in the fridge. I prefer to make it about 4-6 hours before serving. It is still crispy but it has had time for the dressing to soak into the salad.

    July 28, 2015 at 7:38 am Yum! My grandma makes a salad that is a similar idea, but not quite the same. It is always one of my favorites. It has been in my stack of recipes to blog about, but I haven't gotten to it yet. I really need to do that soon. Seeing this is making me crave it!

    August 25, 2015 at 2:39 pm How much does this make? I have a party with about 20 people and am wondering if I should double it?

      August 25, 2015 at 3:30 pm It makes a large mixing bowl worth of salad. But, it probably would not be enough if you're planning on feeding 20 people with it. I would say double it. The worst that can happen is there are leftovers. And these leftovers are heavenly!
