Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 packages ramen noodles broken into small pieces (remove seasoning packets)
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups kale broken into small pieces and stems removed
  • 1 bunch bok choy chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions sliced
  • 3 medium carrots shredded
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the ramen pieces, almonds and sesame seeds and cook for 3-5 minutes (stir constantly to avoid scorching), or until golden-brown in color. Pour into a heatproof bowl and let cool.
  • Wipe out the skillet, add the 2 Tbsp olive oil and place skillet back over the heat. Add the kale pieces and cook until soft, around 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cooled ramen mixture, the kale, bok choy, green onion and carrots. Mix well. In a small bowl, combine the 1/4 cup olive oil, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, salt and pepper. Mix well and pour over the salad; toss and serve.

Notes

  • Do not walk away from the ramen-almond-sesame-seed mixture while it is on the stove top. It will burn very quickly and easily when not watched.
  • Throw this salad together right before serving it. The ramen will get soft if it sits for too long, which is just fine for leftovers but you'll want to preserve the crunch in order to WOW guests.
  • Omit the kale completely if you'd like to simplify the recipe. I have an enormous bag of kale in my fridge and I've been trying to add it to as many recipes as possible lately, but this salad will still be AMAZING without it.
