  • This can be made ahead of time, just keep the mixtures separate until serving time. I always put the mixtures in big resealable bags and put in a big bowl right before serving time.

I made a few changes that made this wonderful. First when making the dressing, I used only 1/3 cup sugar. It is plenty. If you want to use Splenda to make it sugar free that would work as well. I will probably try that next time. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Instead of the Chicken Ramen Noodles, I used Oriental. This flavor seems to compliment this recipe more so. One last change I made to the dressing was adding the packet of orienal seasoning mix to the actual dressing and not the nut mix. This makes it much more flavorful. When I sauteed the nut mix I only used 1/4 cup butter. Just trying to cut back on the fat and it works! My kids love this!


I just made this and it is wonderful. I would give it a ten if I could! I do have some tips that I hope will help-break the noodles up into small pieces so they toast evenly, make sure the sugar is well blended into the dressing ingredients, add the dressing a little at a time to the salad mixing well after each addition and make this in a very large bowl. I did toast the nuts separately and advise that you wait until the nuts and noodles are cool before adding them to the slaw.


Loved it, but I made some changes that we delightful. Too lazy to prep broccoli, so I used broccoli slaw. Cut sugar to 1/3 cup on advice of other reviewers. Substituted cashews and pistachios because I didn't have almonds and sunflower seeds. Added about 1 c. of sliced grapes (someone else did this, and it sounded good...could have cut sugar even more). Took it to a church meal and got rave reviews, and I'm ready to make up a batch for another event this weekend. Love it, and so easy...
