How to Make Oriental Ramen Broccoli Salad

We recently hosted a graduation party at our church for the high school seniors. We do this every May to honor this special milestone. I always enjoy decorating and planning the menu for this annual event. The simple menu includes pizza (lots and lots of pizza), salads and desserts. The church provides the pizzas and families within the church are asked to bring salads or desserts. It’s kinda like a potluck with a theme!

I decided to kick it old school and make Oriental Ramen Broccoli Salad. Oriental Ramen Broccoli Salad is always a big hit. I also made Tropical Cheesecake Fruit Salad.

Our in-house baker bakes and decorates the cake for this special celebration. Yes, it’s nice having a cake decorator to handle all the intricate work that goes into decorating cakes.

Oriental Ramen Broccoli Salad is a breeze to make. There’s not much prep work at all except for toasting the slivered almonds. For best results, make this salad within an hour or two before serving. You don’t want the ramen noodles to get mushy.

Toast the slivered almonds by placing them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and baking at 350º until lightly brown, about five minutes. Let cool.

Toasted Almonds - Oriental Ramen Broccoli Salad

Combine the two packs (12 oz. each) of broccoli slaw, almonds, green onions and sunflower kernels. Gently stir in the crushed noodles.

Helpful Hint: I could only find 16 oz. packages of broccoli slaw when I made this recipe a few days ago, so I used one and a half packages.

Whisk together the canola oil, sugar, apple cider vinegar and one seasoning pack from the ramen noodles. Pour over the salad and toss to coat. Store in the fridge until ready to serve. This salad is best when made within 2 hours before serving.
