Oriental Ramen Noodle Salad

Submitted By: Char Gibson
Submitted From: West Virginia Northern Community College – Wheeling, WV

  • 3 packages Ramen Noodles Cooked and drained (no seasoning packet, reserve for different recipe later)
  • 1 lb package cole slaw mix
  • 1 5oz package sliced almonds
  • 6 green onions chopped including greens

  • Dressing
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 tablespoons rice vinegar (MUST BE RICE) any brand
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Mix dressing. Toss other ingredients together.

Hint: If the dressing doesn’t seem to be mixing together well, mix as best you can, pour over salad quickly, and toss. It will be fine.

Additional Notes: If you don't have almonds you can use almost any other kind of nut. We've used chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, pine nuts just to name a few. You can be creative with this and add rasins or dried cranberries also.

Suck It Spammers!

Comment spammers have always been a problem here in Ramen land. I have implemented a blacklist, added moderation (just try to comment about poker), but now I have the final solution...

Introducing code-words for comments. When you enter a comment you will now need to enter a code-word. It should be easy to figure out.

Recipe Categories are Coming!

The number one item in my last poll was a request for recipe categories. I have added the following categories:

  • Beef
  • Chicken
  • Dessert
  • Pork
  • Quick and Easy
  • Seafood/Fish
  • Soup
  • Vegetarian

Let me know if I should add any others (in the comments section). I do assume that as I read back through the old recipes I will figure out new categories...

While I am fixing all the categories, I am also pruning some of the recipes that dont live up to the modern standards of the site. For example, recipes that simply suggest using a double flavor packet, which is quite a drole idea.

Attention Blog Spammers…

I have upgraded my blacklist features, which means I will no longer have to even see your stupid posts. The new blacklist will delete your posts and I wont even need to moderate them myself. I have lowered my Comment URL threshold to 0, meaning any comments that contain a URL must be approved. I will keep this in place for some time.

Today I deleted about 30 posts for www.free-casino-blah-blah-blah. You would think that the person/program doing this would get the point that its not working, but I guess if your job is a spammer you are a moron anyway.

Images Coming Soon

As some readers have noted, the site has no images, and looks rather plain. I realize this, however, I have zero talent at making images. So, I have asked some friends for help, and will attempt to do my best.

If you want to send me some images for the site, feel free to email me.

New Webhost!

I have a new web host to go with my new site. My new host has some killer options and a nice simple web interface for when you are too lazy to do stuff by hand. The only "drawback" is that I have to pay for it myself. Its pretty cheap (like ramen), but I am still taking direct donations to pay for the site. If you like the recipes, donate a buck or two for my hosting fees. (The donations go right to the hosting, so unfortunately, I cannot use them to buy ramen.)

Donate towards my web hosting bill!

New Site!

As you can see, I have a new site, powered by WordPress. The new blog format will make it easier for me to post reipces. It will also mean that you guys can rate recipes, and also post comments on them (although I may initially have some features disabled until I figure out what I am doing).

If you want to, you may still visit the Old Ramen Page.

Thanks to all the people in the WordPress forums who helped me port my custom perl script so that it would import entries.
