It’s county fair time around here and it always makes me a little bit nostalgic as I LOVED the fair when I was growing and then went on to participate in 4-H when I got older. It’s fun to see Miss K get just as excited as me about it as I did when I was little!

It always makes me wonder if others have amazing county fairs like we are blessed to have or are we just lucky? Growing up I always thought that county fairs everywhere were big and grand just like ours was. It took me until I was in my late 20’s to realize this isn’t the case. For work, we often have booths at county fairs in our service area. After going to several other fairs I realized that we were really like to have such a great fair!

MY OTHER RECIPES

You may ask me what excites me so much and obviously one answer to that is the food of course! Fair food is the best. Maybe not the best for you, but there’s a reason that fair time is only once a year. Trust me, I fully indulge. The pork chops on a stick, the cheese curds, corn dogs, mini donuts, homemade french fries, malts etc. It all is calling my name!

Of course, one of the other main attractions is all the rides for the kids. Miss K could not wait to go riding! We got a bunch of tickets and set out for the rides. Our little adventurer, RyRy, decided she wasn’t as adventurous at the fair. She would not go on a ride. Every time we asked she’d quickly shake her head and say, “No, no, no!”

The hubs was not excepting that. He was on a mission. He tried the carousel which resulted in her leaping into his arms as soon as the horse started moving. Then somehow he convinced her to try riding the boats with Miss K. Of course she fell in love and cried hysterically when she had to get off! Can’t win can ya?

Fair time here also means that soon summer will come to an end and we will be back to school in Minnesota. I’m focused on trying to squeeze as much fun into summer as possible yet and so should you! Today we are embracing the best potluck salad ever. It’s quick, it’s easy and its delicious! The perfect amount of crunch, sweetness and perfection!

To make Asian Ramen Salad a little bit lighter I used Truvia® Spoonable. It’s one of my favorite secret ingredients because it helps me reduce the calories in delicious recipes and not sacrifice the flavor. Truvia® sweetener is natural, great-tasting sweetness that was born from the leaves of the stevia plant. Asian Ramen Salad is the ultimate potluck recipe to bring to your end of the summer parties!

      I’ve never seen this salad at any potluck I’ve been to? If I had, I would gobble it up because it looks amazing!

    • K. J. Gillenwater


      I have made a similar salad, but with cubed chicken added for a meal. Also can use peanuts instead of the almonds. Very good!

      • Julie Evink


        Great options K.J.!!

        • Camille


          Are the sunflower seeds salted?

    • John Bales


      The Asian Ramen Salad turned out SO GOOD! The dressing would be versatile to use in other salads. I made the recipe as per the recipe (only had seasoned rice vinegar which really tasted good in the dressing. Used four individual packets of Truvia which I thought was sweet enough though not quite 2 Tablespoons (taste and adjust to your own preferences). The salad was very filling and might back off a bit on sunflower seeds. Would be good with roasted chicken chicken breasts and some mandarin orange slices for an entree salad. This is definitely a keeper I’ll be making frequently!

      • John Bales


        Update: I meant roasted chicken breast cut or torn into bite sized pieces.

      • Julie Evink


        So glad you enjoyed it! Chicken would be a great addition for a main dish salad!

    • Clyde Gorsuch


      The recipe says this is a single serving. That looks like a huge amount of salad for one serving. It looks to me like it should be more like 6-8.

    • Traci


      Might try leaving the noodles out nad add them as needed so they don’t get soggy. This looks yummy!

      • Julie Evink


        Yes I do this often if I’m not feeding a large group!

    • Lynda Buchholz


      I can’t find the ingredients in the recipe.

    • Gerald


      It would be a lot better if you left the onions out

      • Julie Evink


        That’s a personal preference but you sure can do that!
