Recently, at a family/friends gathering after a funeral, I tasted a dish others there called Asian Salad or possibly Asian Cold Slaw. Someone who was familiar with the dish said it was very quick and easy to make. I do know that it consisted of ramen noodles, a cold slaw mixture (probably a bagged mix from the produce section), and the dressing was thin, sweet-tasting. Does anyone have this recipe?
Allrecipes.com has several versions but most include pasta noodles or meats.
Thanks for your help.
I have this recipe that is called SUMI SALAD. It is excellent!
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds - sauted
8 green onions - sliced thin
1 head (2lbs) cabbage - chopped fine
2 packages Ramen Noodles ( 3 oz pckgs) (omit spices) - uncooked and crumbled
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 cup of light oil
6 tbsp. rice vinegar
Combine all ingredients and toss with dressing.
NOTE: I have substituted cole slaw mix for the cabbage with excellent results.
Jan, I hope this is what you are looking for....Carol
There are probably gazillion variations of what you're talking about. I think "asian salad" is kind of like "potato salad" or "tossed salad"...You have an idea of what you'll get but there are always major variations.
I know it's a favorite for potlucks I go to, but everybody's is different, even though they all call it Asian salad or Asian slaw. Most of them do have some kind of noodle, though. One reason it's so poular is meat is optional, for vegetarians, and can be widely varied; using beef, chicken or shrimp.
