Oriental Coleslaw

Posted by on May 27, 2014 in Recipes | 5 comments

I’ve always loved Oriental Coleslaw, but when you make the regular recipe, it is certainly lacking in color! I think color makes food so much more appealing, don’t you? In this Oriental Coleslaw recipe, I’ve added lots of color and it doesn’t take away the wonderful flavor of the original salad recipe. In fact, it adds more flavor and certainly a lot more eye appeal.

A colorful Oriental Coleslaw salad with wonderful flavor!


Here’s the recipe I usually use….    If you have a different recipe variation that you like, just add the extra color to it!

Oriental Coleslaw Recipe


1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup oil
Salt and pepper
2 Flavor packets from 2  Ramen noodle packages (chicken flavor)
Mix together and set aside.



1 pkg. coleslaw (chopped or shredded cabbage)
1/2 c. toasted almonds
1/2 c. green onions
1/3  cup sesame seeds – or substitute sunflower seeds
1 pkg. dry  Ramen noodles, crushed – add last!
1/8 cup shredded carrots
red, yellow, and orange peppers chopped – approx 1/2 cup altogether or to your liking
Optional: shredded carrots and small amount of chopped or shredded red cabbage for extra color
Put this salad together at the very last-minute to keep everything crunchy.
First, toss the salad ingredients together. Next, mix the dressing well. (I place it in a jar a shake vigorously to mix well.)
Finally, pour dressing on the salad ingredients and mix. Top with crushed Ramen noodles.
Serve immediately.
