Cabbage ramen salad is one of the oriental style salad recipes I have often ate when I first came to U.S 25 years ago. Every potluck party I went, someone always brought this salad. Some were really good, and the other were very oily or too sweet.
I was surprised to see how cheap the ramen was first, and then even more surprised how horrible it tasted after I tasted when it was made into noodle soup. No wonder people used only the noodle part of ramen package.
Toasting the ramen noodle in advance gives incredible texture and nuttiness. I added sliced almonds for even better tastes.
These toasted ramen noodles brought me my childhood memory. I often ate the toasted ramen noodles as a snack growing up. It was popular snack for young kids many years ago in Korea and it still is. Many Korean kids still love to munch these curly noodle pieces. My kids love them, too. So yummy!
