Here is a little dish I made last week for a barbecue, it was quick, tasty and very simple to make. Not the most original salad in the world but it’s a great way to use all those noodles in the back of your cupboard and get a salad on the table without scaring off the men folk with too much lettuce. I made a giant batch and kept half just for us and it didn’t even last the day. So I would consider it a hit.



1 pack of ramyeon

A small wedge of red cabbage

1/2 a carrot

1/2 an onion

1 pepper (any color)

A handful of cilantro


3 tablespoons of sesame seed oil

2 tablespoons of soy sauce

2 tablespoons of sweet chili sauce

2 tablespoons of lemon juice

1 tablespoon of sesame seeds

1/2 an inch of freshly grated ginger



1. Finely slice your red cabbage, pepper, and onion and put in a bowl.

2. To make the dressing combine all the ingredients in a jug and stir together.

3. While it’s still in the packet, smash the ramyeon with a heavy object so it’s all broken into small pieces. Then sprinkle them over the salad. Pour the dressing over everything and give it a good mix. The dressing will soak into the ramyeon making it soft. Put the whole thing in the fridge and leave it for a couple of hours to do its magic. Then serve and enjoy.
