Crunchy Ramen Coleslaw

8 servings

Okay...we all know that Cole slaw gets a bad rap sometimes. At least if you're like me, the thought of pungent, mushy, overly -sweetened cabbage sounds anything but refreshing and appealing. Enter this crunchy, tangy, salad. It's as easy to make as it is delicious, all while having a variety of crunch. And yes, traditional Ramen noodles are a far cry from anything "healthy"...but let's be honest, we all usually have a few packages on hand. Also...there are so many "healthy" ramen varieties available now. You can always find at least 2 varieties in my pantry...one of them a surprisingly healthy version, and the other the traditional brand/flavor for those times when I just want a good old package of Maruchan. But enough from me...you need a dish to pass, and you don't have time to keep reading me rambling!
