    That Ramen noodle salad is so good! I always add some of the noodle seasoning packet too. We have that salad a lot during the summer. :)

    We too add the seasoning packet with the dressing plus use napa cabbage instead of regular green cabbage. I also add shredded carrot for color, sometimes a bit of red or yellow bell pepper if I have it on hand. My family loves it, especially a favorite of the grand kids!

    This salad is a huge hit every time I make it! I also add the chicken seasoning packet to the dressing mixture. To save time, I use a bag of coleslaw already shredded.
