I've made this 3 times so far. It's easy to make and tastes good. I skipped sunflower seeds but it was still good.

SOOOOO good and easy. I have been making it once a week since I found the recipe and everyone who tries it wants a copy. I leave out the chicken entirely- it doesn't need it. Yummy on it's own! Thanks for posting.

This was sooo good! I've made it twice now, each time using 3 oven-roasted chicken breasts (which was a lot of chicken). The almonds and ramen noodles really give this salad a great taste! I've tried it both with and without extra dressing and prefer this salad with a single batch of dressing. It's just the right amount to be able to taste it but not enough to leave a big puddle of dressing at the bottom of the bowl. The dressing is nice and sweet and tastes yummy! This is a definite keeper! Thanks for posting!

My partner's & my favorite cole slaw! We've made it probably 10 times, and I've perfected it to our low-fat low-calorie diet. <br/>(1) Most importantly I only use 1/4 cup oil and always cold-pressed (chemical-free) extra virgin olive oil (which is such a good fat for you raw); honestly sometimes I use even LESS and this slaw is still great with some extra spices. In order to have enough dressing, though, I add 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce and 1/4 cup brown or dijon mustard. <br/>(2) Splenda or Stevia work great instead of sugar if you're into that (and 3 Tbsps is plenty). <br/>(3) Good spices include lots of fresh-ground ginger root, fresh minced garlic, salt & pepper, a dash of cayenne pepper, and/or even garam masala indian spice blend if I'm feeling exotic. This is a lot of the stuff probably found in the ramen seasoning packet but without the preservatives. <br/>(4) FIBER CEREAL! instead of ramen noodles. The day I realized I could make this salad even more guilt-free without the processed ramen was a glorious day: using fiber cereal (the little sticks) to add the crunch is great. I do toast them (and the almonds & sunflower seeds), but you don't need to use any oil to do it -- just keep an eye on them every 30 seconds!<br/>(5) You can cut the amount of almonds in half too -- there's still plenty of crunch!<br/><br/>LOVE this cole slaw, and these healthy modifications make it taste just as great as the original with probably 60+% less fat (56g/serving to ~20g). :)

I have people asking me to bring this to their parties. It is a fabulous and easy salad to make. Instead of sunflower seeds, I brown sesame seeds just because I always have them.

I made this recipe a few days ago and it was just delicious. I think the crunchiness of the cabbage and ramen noodles was the best part. I love asian inspired salads, so I also found this recipe that is really easy and turned out to be yummy: http://perdueyummersummer.com/recipes/sesame-ginger-chicken-salad/16/

Shocked at how good this was. I added some craisans. Any dried fruit would probably work. WATCH the ramen - it burns easily. Be careful not to overdress. Definitely would serve this to company.
