    Really unique and tasty recipe! I only used half a head of cabbage though, and cut down a little on the oil and brown sugar, but it was amazing! Would recommend.

    It was awesome! I did use avocado oil rather than the vegetable oil, and I added a touch of sesame oil. I even added grilled chicken for some protein. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Fantastic. I altered the recipe a bit, I eliminated the lettuce and replace with a green cabbage instead. I also added soy sauce to the dressing and used peanut oil. It was amazingly good, crunchy and a hit. The secret to the extra crunch is waiting until the last second to add the ramen mix and adding only enough for what you’re serving, putting any extra to the side. Otherwise it gets soggy. I doubled the recipe and it lasted in the house about a week and with every serving we sprinkled the ramen on top. It was a huge hit!

    Very satisfying lunch! Made a ton for just me and my husband, and definitely keep the crunchy pieces separate, but overall we enjoyed it

    Tasty! We used the oriental ramen pack instead of the chicken. It lasts for lunches for a couple days. Will make this again.
