Strawberry Ramen Salad

Strawberry Ramen Salad

Strawberry season is coming and I’ve got a great recipe to share with you today!  If you’re a fan of the classic ramen salad that is a tradition at potlucks and picnics (we are!), you will love this salad. It’s got a great crunchy mix made up of ramen noodles, sesame seeds, and almonds, all toasted with butter until they are extra crunchy! Toss in some strawberries, Parmesan cheese, and homemade dressing, and you’ve got an absolutely delicious salad. I made a smaller version of this salad for us to enjoy, then liked it so much that I made it again two days later to take to a potluck. Everyone there loved it, and it’s so easy that it just might be my go-to salad this spring!  It’s delicious as a side dish, but next time I might add some grilled chicken on top and, some crusty bread on the side and serve it for dinner. Yum!
