The first time I made this salad, there were groans and eye-rolling and college flashbacks when  the words ramen noodles were spoken. But folks, this dish will have you reaching for seconds. I’m telling you… ramen noodles are getting a raw deal! Even though ramen noodles are used for the base, the combination of flavors of the veggies and sauce will make you wonder why you didn’t think of this before.

Note – my grocery doesn’t carry just the noodles, so I bought the soup packets. I just discarded the flavor packs that came with. Honestly, I had to sneak the  3 packets of ramen noodle soup into the house for this recipe.  They hid out like outlaws in the pantry until I made this salad…

This easy salad will be a favorite at every get-together!

HOW TO STORE RAMEN NOODLE SALAD

  1. Store any leftovers tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.
  2. Salads containing ramen noodles can be made up to 1 day ahead and stored tightly covered in the refrigerator until serving. After that the noodles may become mushy, altering the texture of the salad.

  1. Hi Linda, you are very welcome! I loved your post and was happy to feature it! I never tried ramen noodles in a salad before I made this…and now I am in love with it! One of the best things is that it is not mayonnaise based so I am not afraid to serve it outside on a hot day! Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs- Christine

  2. This looks very tasty and the colors are beautiful! Thanks for sharing #OMHGWW

  3. super yuuuum :)…looks like my fave indeed

  4. Hubby can’t understand why I like ramen, he won’t eat it. No problem- more for me!

    I also wanted to thank you for picking the chicken as one of the features on Oh MY Heartsie Girl Party.

    Have a great week.

    Hugs,
    Linda

  5. I have made this with cucumbers before instead of the peppers, so that may be an option. If you make this, let me know what you used and how you liked it! Hugs – Christine

  6. This looks so yummy! I’d have to find some substitutes since I can’t eat peppers but I just love the pop of color that it gives.
