Noodle Salad Recipe?
Butter: Choose a high-quality butter, for that crispiness on the ramen noodles. It adds a flavor. Ensures that each strand of
Ramen Noodles: Don’t limit ramen noodles to soup! By removing the seasoning packet we can turn them into a delightful element in our salad. Make sure to adequately crush them for texture in each bite.
Slivered Almonds: These little slices of almond heaven bring a nuttiness to the salad. Their slender shape and delicate crunch create a contrast with the hearty ramen noodles resulting in a symphony of textures on your palate.
Sesame Seeds: Although small in size these tiny seeds burst with flavor and provide a crunch that dances on your tongue. They also add an appearance, to the dish.
Napa Cabbage: This is not your average cabbage. Napa cabbage offers a slightly peppery crunch. Its tender leaves hold up well to the dressing without wilting.
Green Onions: These onions offer a zesty flavor that perfectly complements the other ingredients without overpowering them.
To ensure the flavor spreads evenly throughout the salad it’s best to thinly slice the ingredients.
Light Flavored Olive Oil: For the dressing start with a flavored olive oil as a mild base that blends well with other flavors.
Plain White Vinegar: Add vinegar to bring a sharp tang that cuts through the richness of the oil and adds balance and brightness to the dressing.
White Sugar: To achieve a sour balance include some white sugar, in the dressing to counteract the acidity of the vinegar.
Low-Sodium Soy Sauce: For depth and saltiness in your dressing opt, for low-sodium soy sauce which brings a bomb of flavor. Choosing low sodium ensures that your salad remains flavorful without becoming too salty.
Steps To Make Ramen
Step 1: First, let’s start by making the dressing. Take a jar. Combine some olive oil, white vinegar, sugar and a splash of low-sodium soy sauce. Give it a shake until the sugar is completely dissolved. Set it aside for later.
Step 2: Now heat up a skillet. Melt some butter, over medium heat. While the butter is melting, take your package of ramen noodles. Crush them up in the bag. Make sure to remove and set aside the seasoning packet as we won’t need it for this recipe. Add the noodles, slivered almonds and sesame seeds, to the skillet. Stir everything together well. Let it sauté until it turns brown and becomes deliciously fragrant. Once done transfer it onto a plate to cool down.
Step 3: In the meantime shred your cabbage until you have 8 to 10 cups worth. Thinly slice your onions well. Combine the cabbage and onions in a mixing bowl. Now add in your cooled
Step 4: It’s time to dress up our salad! Pour that dressing you made earlier over your ingredients and give everything a good toss until they blend together harmoniously.
Step 5: Serve it promptly. Witness how it steals the spotlight during your meal!
