Super easy Asian inspired slaw with crunchy, raw ramen noodles give this Asian twist on an old American favorite.
Crunchy, fresh, colorful…that is how I view slaw, or coleslaw. I really like fresh slaw and skip the pre-made stuff. I just don’t get that mayo-like vinegary mystery dressing with soggy dressing. This is so easy I don’t know why people don’t make their own, I think they just know what they know, ya know?
This is almost a super clean salad, there is 1 Tbs of commercial mayo used as an emulsifier and dried, commercial ramen noodles as a condiment, 1 Tbs, just omit this and the ramen if you are into clean eating. The super healthy, crunchy veggies and an approving nod from Mr. Craftiness makes this a super winner in our house. Super winner because Miss B approves too! I ate an Asian Slaw with ramen once and loved it, crunchy and explosions of flavor, I had to recreate it, I was on a mission.
This is super easy, just pick your favorite crunchy veggies and put the dressing ingredients in a mason jar and you’re done. I like to keep veggies and dressing separate until ready to serve, that way I can enjoy this salad all week long without it turning soggy and gross. If you are bringing this potluck style, toss all right before serving. The pre-salting method makes your veggies stay crunchy and helps the cabbage absorb the dressing. If you are pressed for time just skip this step.
Bon Appetite y’all!
