Chinese Chicken Salad with Ramen Noodles!

Who doesn't like ramen noodles? This salad is always a crowd pleaser and is also a good/easy pot luck go-to. The recipe has been around for awhile so it's nothing new under the sun but I recently remembered it and have made it twice this month (once for dinner at home and once for a pot luck). Easy. Refreshing. Delicious.


1 Bag of Shredded Iceberg Lettuce

1/2 head of cabbage, shredded

1 rotisserie chicken, shredded

2 bags of ramen noodles (oriental flavor-blue package), crushed

1 large bunch of green onions, chopped

1 package of sunflower seeds

1 package of slivered almonds (I used the brand Almond Accents usually found in the produce section)

1 Cup of vegetable oil

5 Tblsp. of rice vinegar

1/4 cup sugar

2 flavor packets from Ramen noodles (set aside for dressing mixture)


Combine the shredded chicken, chopped green onions, lettuce and cabbage, sunflower seeds and slivered almonds into large salad bowl. Crush the ramen noodles then open and toss with the salad. Set aside the flavor packets for the dressing.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, sugar and flavor packets from the ramen noodle packages.

Pour over salad, toss and enjoy!


  1. I love this recipe! Gonna share it with the wifey!!

  2. Great recipe! I like to roast the almonds and sesame seeds instead of subflower seeds.
