Napa Cabbage Ramen Slaw by Call Me PMc


Some people call this recipe salad and some call it slaw since the base is napa cabbage. It’s a well-known recipe that’s been around for years. This recipe is popular for its taste and textures. As well, it’s a great make-ahead recipe to enjoy hours or days later. Because of the cabbage, it can sit out for hours without getting soggy and limp.

Napa cabbage has a delicate taste but a firm, crunchy texture. It’s the perfect companion to Asian-flavored dishes; it is also called “Chinese cabbage,” It differs from other cabbages by its large size, its relatively long shape, and its compact leaves with a crumpled look.

This slaw comes together super quickly if you chop the vegetables early. You can prep them up to 2 days early if you need to. Keep the slaw ingredients in one airtight container and the dressing in another. 

If you want to keep the salad for a few days, add the dressing at the last minute.

I don’t toast the ramen, I find that it doesn’t affect the flavor or texture once it’s in the salad. If you want, you can toast them in 2 tablespoons of butter before adding them to the salad.

It can sit at room temperature for about 4 hours.

This is a simple yet wonderful tasting salad dressing. I like to keep some on hand for other salads and potstickers. I find it easiest to make it in a mason jar. Add your vinegar, oil, lime juice, soy sauce, and honey. Make sure your lid is screwed on tight and shake to combine. If you’re not ready to serve the salad, you can store it in the refrigerator until you are.
