Are ramen noodles a staple in your house? They are here!! My kids like to eat them with a little butter and the seasoning packet. I must admit I even find them yummy! Well this Orange Almond Cherry Ramen Noodle Salad is the cat’s meow. I know what you are thinking …can’t be eating all those carbs. Well that is why I am balancing it with some fresh fruit and veggies. That way you can get your vitamins and fiber.
I love this beautiful salad. Orange Almond Cherry Ramen Noodle Salad combines oranges, almonds, dried cherries, ramen noodles, red pepper and cabbage dressed with a tangy sweet mustard vinaigrette. You can use prepackaged coleslaw to speed up the prep time. You can have this on the table in a few minutes. It is perfect for lunch or a light dinner.
The flavors meld together so well and you will love the dried cherries!! If you have trouble finding dried cherries you can substitute dried cranberries. They are a good second choice. Put this on your list this week and let me know what you think! I love to hear from you!
