Ramen Noodle Salad with Sweet ‘n’ Sour Dressing

Dolores Brignac's family was skeptical the first time she served this unusual salad-but one taste convinced them it was a winner. "Now when I bring it out, everyone digs in and cleans their plates," she pens from Braithwaite, Louisiana.

    We loved trying this recipe! I served it on the side with Asian Chicken thighs and it was completely gone before I left the table. Not a drop left! 5-stars! I will make this again.
