Classic Asian Ramen Salad

This past weekend I flew to Salt Lake City to surprise my grandmother on her 80th birthday. The whole family was gathering for a mini family reunion and I decided to show up unexpectedly.

I spent all day taking three flights and driving a rental car 1 1/2 hours before finally arriving at her house. As I drove up I could see the whole family gathered in the backyard chatting and having a good time. I parked the car in the front yard and walked around the side of the house. As I walked up to everyone they all looked shocked and confused. The best part was the expression on my mom and grandmother’s face. Tears were shed and lots of hugs were given.

The weekend was an absolute blast. Lots of food. I even made a batch of my Gooey S’mores Cake Bars, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. At one point someone brought an asian ramen salad to the gathering and I simply couldn’t get enough of it.

Then later in the weekend we all went to Chuck A Rama, where I found myself piling my plate high with another style of asian ramen salad. The wheels were turning in my brain and I just knew I needed to make my own Classic Asian Ramen Salad to share on the blog.

But by the time I got home from my long weekend of traveling I felt like I needed a major cleanse. So I pulled out my juicer, went to the store and bought insane amounts of veggies and fruits, then proceeded to juice said produce.

I left my jar of juice on the counter then began to cleaned up the juicer and all it’s tedious parts. My curious 3 year old attempted to pick up my sacred juice from the counter and it slipped out of her hands, spilling my vitamin rich juice all over the floor, cabinets, counter top and her dress.

After a few tears were shed (hey, it was a lot of work and I was hangry), I decided to make myself and giant bowl of this crunchy Asian Ramen Salad and start the cleanse the next day.

Best decision ever.

This salad is sooooo good, you guys! I love the edamame and mandarin oranges that combine for a sweet and nutty texture. The toasted almonds and ramen noodles add the perfect crunch and the dressing is simply to die for!

    Can you suggest something in place of the edamame? I’m thinking I can just omit it, but don’t want the salad to be lacking in something. Thanks!!

    This is a great side. I’ve had it many times and with many variations. It is just so easy for people to change it up. Someone brought it to a party once with the awesome addition of pomegranate seeds. PERFECTION!

  3. This is an awesome side. I’ve had it commonly and with numerous varieties. It is just so natural for individuals to switch it up. Somebody conveyed it to a gathering once with the amazing expansion of pomegranate seeds. Flawlessness!

    If allergic to sesame what would you suggest to replace the sesame oil? Just leave it out maybe? Thanks! p.s. LOVE this blog! I save tons of your recipes!

  6. Addictive is the right adjective. I don’t why it is, but it is. I have heard more people comment how much they love this salad. Which is giving me a brilliant idea!!!! I have a several day family reunion to go to. I will be bringing several things. This is a popular dish.

    Yummmy! This sounds so delicious and easy to boot. It is only one of me so will cut the recipe in half or……… did say it would last for up to 3 days, but don’t want to over do it.
    Thanks and just love your blog site, your wonderful recipes, and tidbits of life.

    1. You could definitely cut the recipe in half. It does make a large batch (perfect for taking to parties), but if it’s just you, half would be just perfect.
