"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 brought this recipe in to church for a potluck. Since it's Lenten season, we couldn't have any meat.. or dairy products until Easter. I used canola oil to stir fry the ramen noodles and walnuts.. my cousin even mentioned that you can stir fry them in a dry pan (just for a shorter period of time). This went over very well! I hardly had anything to bring back home. :)"

"I loved this and will definitely make it again!!! I doubled the dressing, and will most likely double the noodles and walnuts next time - that part really made the salad stand out and there just wasn't enough of that for me!! The flavor of the toasted walnuts was perfect with the other ingredients. I also added a little salt and pepper to taste (to my own portion). Yum! Thanks, Leslie!"

" I, too, love this salad and just the two of us can eat the whole thing.  I use grape nuts cereal for the walnuts, which gives it a sweeter taste.  Oh so good!!!!!!!  We can't wait until June when fresh local strawberries are available to make it.
