This recipe looks so similar to an oriental slaw one I haven't made in awhile--it uses ramen noodles. Looks like a very "fun" way to get some vegetables in!!! Thanks!!!

This is the oriental slaw with the ramen noodles but wheen I sent it to the LA chef they exchanged the ramen with the chinese noodles which I couldn't find at the time so I just leave them out now. It tastes just as good.
