Ramen Cabbage Salad Recipe Tips:

  • If you don’t like mushrooms, feel free to leave them out.
  • Make ahead! You can make the dressing ahead of time. Just wait to toss the dressing with the salad until right before you are ready to serve it.
  • Instant Ramen Noodles: I like to use the crunchy ramen noodles with the chicken flavour seasoning packets, but feel free to use vegetable.
  • Vinegar: This recipe calls for white vinegar but you can also use rice vinegar.
  • This salad is best enjoyed immediately after it’s made. Although, I do love the leftovers…the noodles get a bit soggy but are very flavourful!
  • Quick Tip: You can use a bagged cabbage salad mix (coleslaw mix) to make this!

Units Scale


  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds (toasted)
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds (toasted)
  • 1/2 medium sized head of green cabbage (shredded)
  • 2 cups fresh mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 green onions or scallions (sliced)
  • 12 cups bean sprouts
  • 1/4 cup salted sunflower seeds
  • 1 (3 ounce) package of instant noodles (ramen, broken up (I like to use the chicken flavour packet))
  • 1/2 package of chow mein noodles (about 3 cups (I use the Parkay brand))


  • 1 package of seasoning from the ramen noodles
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil or olive oil
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp pepper



  1. Mix together the all of the ingredients for the dressing. I use a hand blender to make the mixture nice and creamy. You can hand mix it, but I find the dressing doesn’t mix well this way.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the slivered almonds and sesame seeds on a baking sheet, and toast in the oven until they are golden brown, about 5 minutes. Then remove them from the oven and set aside. Make sure to watch them closely so they don’t burn!
  3. In a large bowl mix together the shredded cabbage, mushrooms, sliced onions, bean sprouts, sunflower seeds, toasted almonds and sesame seeds.
  4. In a separate bowl mix together the ramen and chow mein noodles.

Putting it all together:

  1. Right before you’re ready to serve the salad, pour the dressing over the cabbage salad mixture and toss.
  2. Then stir in the noodles.
  3. Serve right away.
  4. Enjoy!
