Oriental {Coleslaw} Salad

Yum

On the Menu Today~
Oriental Salad



Oriental (Ramen Noodle) Salad
has been around forever...
There are many different variations of this salad,
some use chicken flavored ramen noodles, others don't.


We prefer to use the oriental flavored ramen noodles, if you can find them.
We like to use almonds in this salad,
but cashews make a great substitute.


Oriental Salad is not only delicious and easy to prepare,
it's one of the most economical summer-time salad you can make.
This salad can easily be thrown together for under $5.00 and
can serve between 4 to 6 people.
Not too shabby~ 
Why does food always taste better
when eaten outside?
