Nice summer-tasting salad. I left off the walnuts but otherwise made as-is.

This was fabulous! Super easy to make and very refreshing. My whole family enjoyed the blend of flavors, including my two teenage boys who aren't big salad fans!

I have made a salad similar to this without the Ramen noodles ... This just kicked it up a notch!

Made this for my brother's graduation party & was surprised by how many people asked for the recipe - over half a dozen! Thanks for making me look like a super star ;)

This was very tasty. Didn't change it at all. My family's only complaint was that there wasn't more! I guess I will have to double it next time.

This salad was really good, but I have to admit that I changed the dressing a little bit, because 1/4 cup sugar is WAY too much for European palates. I only used 2 Tbsp of sugar, and added mustard powder and parsley for a bit of flavour, it was kind of bland without it.

I've made this recipe numerous for family and friends, and everyone always enjoys it! It's also delicious when Napa cabbage is substituted for the romaine.

This salad is delicious and the crunchy topping really adds something extra. I will definitely make this again.
