    I always put the noodles and nuts in a pan with a little butter and brown/toast a little. This adds great flavor. Also I add the seasoning packet to the dressing and a little sesame oil. I've never made it with olives, but then again, I don't like olives. I add the toasted noodles and serve because I like it crunchy. Leftovers will get soggy.

    This salad has great possibilities. I agree with the others that said something was missing. I will make this again but instead of the oil, vinegar and sugar dressing I will try Paul Newman's Sesame Ginger Low Fat Dressing. I think that will provide the missing link. I will also leave out the Ramen altogether as I didn't think it added much (maybe I broke up the noodles too small). Maybe I will try bigger chunks but not use the flavor packet as it was added to the dressing which I'm not using for my 2nd try.

    My family really enjoyed this colorful salad. I've made it twice now and the 2nd time I added some grilled chicken and it was a light meal for our family. Just a note: Add the dressing just prior to serving.

    in response to sherriefults: I do not put ingredients together ahead of time, but it is a matter of preference. The ramen noodles get soggy if you do that. I like them crunchy. You could prepare the evening prior and just mix together right before your potluck.

    in response to jaorr: I have seen this recipe using the seasoning from the ramen noodles in the sugar, vinegar, oil. It adds some salt, etc.

    I am making this for a potluck for tomorrow. It says serve immediately. Has anyone made it and let it sit in the fridge overnight?

    yummy. light. and tasty. I omitted the ramen seasoning, instead, i used a teaspoon of chicken bouillon powder. It tasted good.

    It was good and every bite disappeared at a potluck. I gave it 4 stars because of the dressing - seemed to lack something. Plus I don't like my salad drowned in dressing, which would've happened if I used it all -- next time (and I will make again), I will play around with adding something to the dressing - maybe a little garlic and soy sauce??

    I made this following the recipe, was very good and a hit at the potluck. Next time I will cut the oil in half, my personal preference.

    I made this (w/o olives) for a family sit-down dinner this evening. Fantastic! I will definitely make it again!
