Asian Ramen Salad is the Perfect Potluck Recipe!
*This post was compensated by Truvia. All opinions are my own as always.
It seems like during the summer I’m always needing a big salad to bring to a party, potluck or BBQ! This Asian Ramen Salad is one of my favorites to bring. I usually just mix the coleslaw and toasted ingredients together in a big bowl before I go somewhere. When it’s time to serve the food I just pour in the salad dressing I’ve already made and its’ ready to go!
If you aren’t going to consume the entire salad just serve up what you are going to eat and toss that with some of the dressing. This way you don’t mix all the dressing into the salad and make it soggy for the next day!

How do I make Asian Ramen Salad?
First, let’s make our easy Asian salad dressing. You want to grab a small bowl and mix together all the ingredients for the dressing. Set that aside.
After that you will want to preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and toast your ramen noodles, sunflower seeds and sliced almonds.
While they are toasting toss you coleslaw mix in a bowl. When the toasted mixture is cooled a bit toss those in and stir.
Right before serving add the dressing and stir to combine.

Here are a few tips and tricks to make this the best Asian Ramen Salad you will ever have!
If you have any other questions leave me a comment below and I’ll try to give you an answer!
Can Asian Ramen Salad be serving as a Main Dish?
Of course! Our favorite wait to make this salad a main dish is to add leftover grilled chicken to it. Another way to make it a main dish is to grab some rotisserie chicken and add that to it! This is the perfect salad during the summer for a lunch when you add chicken because it won’t heat the house up.
You could also add shrimp or grilled salmon to it too if you have that! Another great option would be tofu!
Can I substitute the Truvia for Sugar?
You can! This recipe calls for 2 Tbsp of Truvia, but if you’d rather use white sugar you can. Just replace the Truvia with 4 Tbsp of granulated white sugar.
Great Add-Ins for Asian Ramen Salad!
- Shredded or Grilled Chciken
- Mandarin Oranges
- Napa Cabbage
- Thinly sliced snow peas
- Diced Red Bell Pepper
Do I need to add the packet of seasoning in the Ramen package?
NO! I get a lot of questions about this. Just throw the packet or keep it for a different use. The homemade Asian dressing is plenty of flavor for this salad. That packet has a lot of sodium in it!
