Ramen Noodle Coleslaw

I have no idea why it has taken so long for me to post this recipe. It's a favorite, for sure. I have been harassed by my lovely friends a few times for not posting it earlier. And everyone I have ever introduced to it, absolutely loves it. You can actually make people love you using this recipe. I swear. And it's so easy, so what the hell? Why not test it out.

This is particularly great for picnics. So, of course, I have chosen to post it during Fall. That was my sarcasm. I'm actually just exceptionally slow.

By the way, I'm loving Fall weather. Not right now, as in today, because it's raining cats and dogs outside, but in general. It's below 90 degrees. That's good news for me. In fact, it's even below 80...even better. And at night, it sometimes goes below 60. I love nothing more than sleeping in the cold.

So in light of loving Fall weather, why not make food that you love...or, I suppose, could potentially love in the future?

Oh, and side note: I love everything Asian. Have I mentioned that yet? Regardless, I do. I lived there for a few years, Singapore specifically, and am now a sucker for anything Asian. Mind you, this is no where near real Asian cuisine...but it has a few hints of the Orient nestled in there!

However, it does use Ramen Noodles, which is totally a Faux Pas.

Ramen Noodle Coleslaw


1 small head of finely chopped cabbage or 1 pkg. coleslaw mix
1 pkg. Ramen Noodles (Chicken flavor), crumbled
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup almonds slivers
1/4 cup chopped scallions (green and white parts)


1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Canola Oil
1/3 cup Seasoned Rice Vinegar
1 Ramen Noodle Chicken flavor packet


Spicy Ranch Dressing

Continuing with my Sriracha obsession...

I literally put it on everything. One of my favorite snacks lately is a piece of Wasa with cottage cheese topped with a little honey and Sriracha. Maybe even throw some cucumber slices on there. Whatever tickles your fancy. It's the perfect snack. Maybe I'll email Wasa and let them in on my creation.

I also put it on sandwiches, chicken, fish, soups, nuts, pizza, rice, french fries, burgers...you name it, and I'll put it on there!

Since I make a lot of salads at home for myself, I have, of course, found a way to incorporate it which does not involve just squirting some all over the lettuce. I added it to my favorite ranch dressing. The easiest dressing in the world. The tastiest ranch dressing (not made from mayo). It's amazing. Have I said enough? I think I've told you about my ranch obsession before. No? Maybe briefly here? Anyway, ranch is my favorite condiment. I love it dearly and could never part with it.

Spicy Ranch Dressing

1 packet of Original Ranch Dips Mix
Instead of the suggested amount of Sour Cream, use Greek Yogurt (2% Fage works best)
As much Sriracha sauce as you want. Be careful, it IS spicy.

Mix it all together, throw it on top of any salad you want, and voilĂ ...you have deliciously addicting, yet healthy, spicy ranch dressing!
