1– 6 oz. pkg. chopped uncookedramen noodles broken up (discard flavor packet)
1bunch broccolicoarsely chopped
1head romaine lettucewashed, cut in small pieces
1small red onionvery thinly sliced (the original recipe called for 4 green onions)
optional fruit — strawberries or kiwis or whatever you want to try.
1c.Sweet and Sour Dressingsee recipe below
Sweet and Sour Dressing
1/2c.red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste.
Combine the broccoli, romaine and the red onions. Right before serving, pour some of the Sweet and Sour Dressing over and toss to coat. Add the walnut/noodle mixture and toss some more. (I usually make extra nut/noodle mixture and sprinkle some on top of salad.) If you want to add strawberries, kiwi or any other fruit, add it now.
You won’t need the whole recipe for dressing so save it for another time. Also, I only mix up what I think we might need. That way you don’t have soggy salad left over and you can always mix up another bowl.
Whisk the sugar and red wine vinegar until sugar has dissolved. Slowly pour in the oil and whisk until it has emulsified. Add in the soy sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Store in refrigerator.
Hope everyone will try this and enjoy it as much as I have in serving it to catering friends.
