Ramen Broccoli Salad Recipe is ramen noodles and broccoli slaw tossed in an Oriental tangy dressing. Easy to make and is a perfect side dish to a picnic or potluck.
I don’t know who originally came up with this recipe but thank goodness they did. The first time I had this salad was back in 2008. Our lunches were catered so everyday lunch was a surprise. This one particular caterer became a fast favorite because everything she made was amazing. This was one of my favorite salads she made. Seconds, please!
Honestly, I could eat just a bowl of this Ramen Broccoli Salad and be just fine. It only takes a few minutes to throw together and they tangy dressing is so good you won’t be able to stop eating it!
Ramen Broccoli Salad Ingredients
- Broccoli Slaw Mix
- Soy Sauce Ramen Noodles (The flavor used to be called Oriental)
- Sunflower Seeds
- Slivered Almonds
- Canola Oil
- White Wine Vinegar
- Chives (optional)
How to make Crunchy Ramen Broccoli Salad
In a large bowl mix together the broccoli slaw, ramen noodles, sunflower seeds, and slivered almonds. Set the seasoning packet from the ramen noodles aside. You will use that for the dressing.
In a small bowl whisk together the seasoning packet, canola oil, vinegar, and sugar.
Toss the dressing with the broccoli salad until well coated.
You can sprinkle chopped chive on top of the salad or a little oniony flavor but it is completely optional.
Tips for making the Ramen Broccoli Salad ahead of time.
- If you are bringing this Ramen Broccoli Slaw Salad to a picnic or potluck you may want to make it ahead of time.
- Add all the ingredients into a large serving bowl except the dressing. Bring along the dressing in a separate container. Right before serving, give the container of dressing a good shake then pour it over the salad. Toss to coat.
- If you add the dressing early the ramen noodles will get soggy and lose their crunchy texture.
Ramen Broccoli Salad Recipe Variations
- Instead of slivered almonds try peanuts or cashews
- Add in dried cranberries for a sweet burst of flavor.
- Instead of white wine vinegar try apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar.
How to store leftover Ramen Broccoli Slaw
There is no way around it. If you have leftovers the ramen noodles will go soft. Not soft like in the soup but soft as in they will lose their crunch. It is still good leftover and you can add some fresh ramen noodles to get the crunch back.
Store leftovers in an airtight container. Leftovers are good for 1 day.
New Ramen Flavor Name
Top Ramen by Nissan changed the name of their Oriental Flavor to Soy Sauce Flavor. It is still in the blue package.
