For potlucks and picnics, this ramen noodle salad is a knockout. I tote the veggies in a bowl, dressing in a jar and noodles in a bag. Then shake them up together when it's time to eat. —LJ Porter, Bauxite, Arkansas

"Most Taste of Home recipes are awesome. I can't say the same for this recipe. The vinaigrette is lacking in flavor; I added rice wine vinegar and soy sauce to give it a bit of punch. I wasn't fond of the noodles; they need to be cooked, drained and cooled and then added to the salad. I would just use slivered almonds and omit the sunflower seeds (just personal preference). Also, you really don't need to toast the almonds. I added shredded chicken to the salad as well. I would not make the exact recipe again."

"Great flavor and texture combination! easy--no new cooking technique to learn. Husband and son loved it. Not the same old side dish either. I did not have sunflower seeds on hand but it's just fine without them. This recipe would be good year-round and it's staying in my recipe collection!"

"I have several recipes for cabbage salads with ramen noodles, but this is the easiest to make. Everyone enjoyed it. Throw in some shredded rotisserie chicken and you've got a meal!"
