Oriental Ramen Broccoli Salad

by Alli

Whenever I take Oriental Ramen Broccoli Salad to a potluck dinner, everyone asks for the recipe. It’s so easy to make and it’s a keeper.

This delicious salad includes crushed oriental ramen noodles, sunflower kernels, almonds, and onions. Whip up the quick homemade dressing and it’s done. 

This Salad has been around for a long time and it’s always a big hit. During spring and summer, I also like to make 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.
