Mouth pain is one of the most annoying pains to have especially since I’m a recipe developer/food blogger. We need to EAT and TASTE TEST everything but when you have mouth issues, it’s kind of hard to do that.

Thankfully, I’m all better now (and thank you for your well wishes!). It was just really rough to eat anything this past weekend. Every time something hot or salty or acidic was put in my mouth, I was in so much pain.

Who knew the dentist could make my mouth worse! Coffee was a struggle but there was no way I could give that baby up so I powered through it. It would be a really good time for someone to develop a coffee IV right about now! Haha

On Sunday, I went to brunch with a few of my new friends that I recently met at Pure Barre. Oh goodness, I was so thrilled to wake up Sunday morning to a healed mouth because that meant all the brunch items I could gobble up!

Brunch + mimosas + good friends + laughs were definitely the perks of Sunday Funday ;)

I’m so thankful for new friendships! We all have so much in common and I have a feeling this will be a regular monthly thing! Our servers are going to LOVE us!

This salad is true to its name. It’s ridiculously amazing.

My aunt gave me this recipe from which she got from her late husband’s family in Indiana. Every single time we make this salad and bring it to potlucks, it is the FIRST to go. Every single time! There’s never a time we leave with some of the salad left in the bowl. It’s always devoured.

I’ve been eating this salad for years and years. I always think of my aunt whenever I have this salad and I love the memories it evokes. See? Food is always attached to a memory!

The best part is, this is probably the easiest thing to throw together and there is no worry about keeping it refrigerated. It’s best served cold but it’s also ok to have it be room temperature.

Either way, I’m sure it won’t last long and you won’t even have to worry about it getting warm. It’ll be gone soo fast and you’ll get requests from everyone for the recipe :)

Servings: 8 -10
Calories: 657 kcal
Ingredients
  • 1: 16 ounce bag coleslaw mix
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, de-shelled/shelled/no shells
  • 1 cup Diamond of California sliced almonds
  • 2: 3 ounce bags ramen* (any flavor, you won't be using the seasoning packets so it doesn't matter)
  • 5 stalks of scallions, sliced
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, place coleslaw mix, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds, crushed ramen (see note below), and scallions.
  2. In a large measuring cup, add vegetable oil, vinegar, and sugar. Whisk together. Don't worry if the sugar will not completely dissolve.
  3. Pour oil mixture over the coleslaw mix and toss everything together with a large spatula until everything is coated well.
  4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  5. Serve cold or room temperature.
Recipe Notes

To crush ramen, place ramen block into a Ziploc bag and using a rolling pin, gently crush the ramen into smaller pieces.

I personally didn't add the seasoning packets because I don't like the MSG/sodium content in ramen seasoning packets. However, I know this is a popular recipe and there are MANY variations of it. So, it's all up to preference on whether or not you want to add the seasoning packets, or anything else to this salad! :)

    By any chance do you know the nutrition facts for this salad and what is considered a serving size?

      Hi, sorry! I do not. There are many nutritional calculators via Google that you could copy/paste the ingredients into. I would say a serving size is about 1 cup? Depends on how much you want to eat!

      I came to a total of 4082 calories for all the ingredients, a lot of it coming from the oil. You could add chicken and make a pretty good main course.

    I was given this recipe by a good friend and it is truly amazing. I like it best the day after I mix it when the noodles absorb some of the dressing and sometimes I kick it up a notch by adding peeled boiled shrimp to it.

    Just wanted to know if you put in the raw ramen without first cooking it? Wont the raw uncooked ramen give digestive problems?

      I haven’t ever heard of digestion problems with raw ramen but yes, you put in the raw ramen. It’s the crunch factor of this salad :)

    This recipe circulated in the Midwest many years ago. It is always a hit!

    I haven’t made this in a little while, but we are having a block party in our neighborhood tomorrow. I used to make it when some of us ladies from work would get together for a potluck. It was always a winner. Yummy and easy to assemble. Depending on when you are making this, you CAN throw it together the day you need it, or the day before…sort of depends on your preference. You can even put it in a bag and mix it in when you are serving it. Either way…IT IS AMAZING! No exaggeration, you will want more than just one serving.

    And you can definately, change or add your own twist to this salad. I added shredded chicken. You can add bacon, dried sweetened cranberries, whatever you like.
