Simple Ramen Salad Dressing
Ramen noodles in Asia are usually made into a soup, but in the west the term usually refers to instant noodles. These can be used to make hot dishes or they can be cooked, cooled, and tossed with other ingredients plus a ramen salad dressing, to make a delicious lunch or dinner.
The following ramen salad dressing is nice served over a simple noodle salad. To make the salad, you can combine a chopped head of red or green cabbage (or half of each), a couple of chopped green onions, and a grated carrot, and then add a package of ramen noodles and the salad dressing. Toss well and refrigerate for a bit, so the flavors can blend. Cook the ramen noodles following the directions on the package, but crush them first to make them shorter and easier to eat.
You could also use this dressing on a pasta salad or another kind of noodle salad. You can use a sugar substitute like Splenda instead of the sugar, or you can leave it out altogether if you prefer. Some people hate sweeteners of any kind in a salad dressing recipe and others like the sweet edge that sugar gives to a salad dressing, so it is your call. You can taste it without and then add it, if you want.
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ ramen noodle seasoning package
- 3 tablespoon vinegar
- 2 tablespoon white sugar
- Add the black pepper, soy sauce, olive oil, noodle seasoning, vinegar, and sugar to a bowl.
- Stir well, until the sugar dissolves.
- Toss with your favorite ramen noodle salad and serve immediately or leave so the flavors can blend.
