What a crazy goooooood creation. We love this recipe. A use less butter but rest a keep the same. Yummy item not reviewed by moderator and published
I first made this dish over 15 years ago. I love it as much today as I did then. The only thing I added was a little s&p to the dressing. This slaw would be perfect to take to a summer get together. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I brought this to 2 different 4th of July holiday BBQs and everyone wanted the recipe - it was all eaten! I used Walnuts and Cranberries instead of the other nuts and raisins YUMMO! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed this recipe exactly. I prepared it for my family and friends during the summer holidays. The feedback was lackluster. Eventually, I added another mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and cider vinegar to the salad to give it more flavor. This helped, but there is still a lot left over. Meanwhile my other side dishes disappeared quickly. If you make this recipe test it on a small crowd first. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent and super yummy salad! Thanks Paula Deen! I also cut back on the butter and oil and my family just raved about it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this salad. I used all of the ingredients called for in the recipe but just didn't use as much butter or oil. I used about 2 T of butter instead of 3/4 cup and used 1/4 cup of roasted sesame oil and 1/4 cup of canola oil. It has a great Asia flair to it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is such a great and easy salad to make. Every time I make it, it disappears almost instantly and friends are always requesting the recipe. I remember my Mom making this when I was a kid. Love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a wonderful salad, especially in summer. I jazz it up even more with 1/2 cup dried cherries and 1/4 cup soy nuts for added crunch. I agree with comments about using less butter...I use about 1/3 of a stick of unsalted butter. Chill for 1/2 hour in fridge before serving. Yumm. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am IN LOVE with this salad!!! I toasted the ramen noodles in a TINY bit of butter before adding them to the slaw...nowhere near 3/4 of a stick. I was kind of afraid of the dressing after all the reviews saying it was too oily, no flavor, etc. so I played with it a little... less oil, more of the seasoning packets, etc. until it was to my liking. I dressed it about 2 hours before serving to let the flavors come together and I absolutely loved it. Makes for great leftovers too... the noodles don't stay as crunchy but the flavors are still there! Will definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so delicious! I also cut back on the oil and next time I'll cut back on the butter, too. Fabulous tasting and the crunch is great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
First of all - my husband and I love this slaw! We've been making a variation on this for more than 20 years. We like to give it a more Asian influence by swapping out about half of the canola oil for sesame oil. If you want to add a little 'heat' to it, put in a Tbs of Samba Oelick (Asian red pepper sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy; halved nicely; toasting the ramen and almonds is the key to the incredible taste of this great salad. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We love this recipe and I do cut down on the oil in the dressing as previously commented. I toast the nuts in the oven and totally omit the step saluting the noodles and nuts in the butter. Someone previously commented that the slaw was soggy the next day-I really like it the next day because the noodles are softer and the flavor is even better the second day! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good did not put in ramen noodles, but it was very good, worth trying for a new salad. item not reviewed by moderator and published
so simple and so good. we had this with fish and chips , love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this coleslaw. I make up double the dressing as I like the on tossed salad also. I have changed the dressing a little by cutting down on the oil to 1/2 cup for a double batch and I like peanut oil better. I have used savory cabbage and Chinese cabbage instead of the broccoli slaw and it is wonderful also. I like to keep the noodles and nut mixture separate until I serve the salad to keep it crunchy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor was amazing, but I really did not like the broccoli slaw mix. The recipe taste very similar to the coleslaw that Bagelhead's make, but the only difference is they use cabbage. I LOVE their coleslaw. Since this recipe has such great flavor, I will make again, but I will make with cabbage instead. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So easy, yet tasted awesome! I served this with chicken breast that I marinated overnight in Soy Vay brand teriyaki sauce. I cut it in strips and grilled it on wooden skewers. Also served with plain rice on the side. This dinner was a hit with my kids, ages 4-17. It made a delicious asian dinner. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've had this recipe saved for months. Never got around to making it until now and boy do I wish I had made it sooner. I love the crunch from all the ingredients and the flavor is AMAZING. I agree with other reviewers that it's pretty oily so I ended up pouring out 1/2 of the oil. Subbed with champagne vinegar since I didn't have the other. Also forgot the green onions, but know that will just make it even better when I do add that. Eat it up. I was disappointed the next day. The noodles were soggy, the broccoli crunch was gone, and I ended up throwing it out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really liked this fast, fresh and tasty recipe. I too added a little honey to the dressing and used chicken flavored ramen. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made this recipe today for the first time for Easter. I've had similar recipes and thought this was pretty good exactly as written. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because I felt it needed just a little bump in flavor to enhance things. When I got home we had a small amount left so I added a little squeeze of honey into the bowl and mixed it up.....perfect! Next time I think I'll add 1/4 cup of honey into the dressing and keep everything else the same! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My mother made this, or a similar variation, many summers when I was growing up. Extremely easy. Great to have when grilling out in the spring or summer, especially if you can keep it relatively chilled. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yes, "tanningcook"! The only thing you need to twitch is what flavor of ramen you want. I like picante beef,or a citrus variety if you have an Asian market close to home. I have been using this for 3-4? years, it is a go-to favorite if I dont want a creamy cole slaw. Does not need the changes that everyone else is commenting on. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Quite tasty. I made as stated with a couple very minor tweaks... I didn't have apple cider vinegar so I used white and added a splash of rice wine vinegar because I DID have that :, added the second packet of seasoning, and my brown sugar was in a big clump and didn't all dissolve, but that was fine. Next time I will tweak a bit more by cutting down on oil (felt it was a bit too "slippery" on the tongue. Will also try without browning ramen noodles as it seems that this was mainly just a way to add butter to a vegetable recipe. Will definitely make again!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I rarely ever give a 5 star but this is a definite KEEPER! I didn't have the nuts, and it was still great. I was concerned at first because I thought when I saw Paula make it, the ramen noodles appeared "boiled". Mine were browning in the butter, thus adding some crunch to the salad. The combination of it all we just exceptional! I would not omit the sunflower seeds as they added a nice balance of flavor. I ate mine over grilled chicken and my husband had scallops wrapped in bacon and it accompanied both phenominally! Thank you to the gals that sent the recipe in and thank you to Paula for airing it! It's a sure hit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just follow Paula's recipe and you'll be a hit. There are so many reviews with so many changes, you could make yourself crazy. Contrary to what some people have said, don't worry about making it the night before. It tastes great the next day! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The first time I made this I too thought it was a bit blah tasting - sort of oily without a lot of flavor. The second time I made it with the brown sugar instead of white and also added a half packet of Good Season's Italian dressing mix to the liquid along with the packet of noodle seasoning. Made a huge difference. Also, I have used this a main dish at potlucks and just add some cooked chicken breast meat - cut into cubes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this today for forty teachers. The compliments were astounding. I made it yesterday and added the dressing several hours before serving. I thought the dressing was very sweet before adding it to the slaw. After adding it the flavor was quite muted. I ended up doubling the flavor packets and adding sesame oil. The crunch of the sunflower seeds, noodles and almonds makes the dish. A great slaw!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made a half-recipe to bring to a potluck. I think it tastes great as printed (but I left off the onion garnish. I used brown sugar and chopped my own fresh broccoli crowns instead of buying a bag. Let's see what the other guests think! By the way, the ramen noodles are sharp when broken up and ripped through the bag I rolled them in. Luckily, I had it on a cutting board so I didn't lose any. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wont make this version again. I was surprised with so many great reviews I used the mandarin orange idea and thought the flavor In the end was not acceptable. I added about a half cup of sugar and it was fair. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe was a huge crowd pleaser! I picked out this recipe originally just to please my grandma and mother for a dinner I was going to make for them as a little treat, but personally I didn't think I was going to like it despite all the reviews. As it turns out... I LOVED the broccoli slaw! I had a hard time finding oriental ramen noodles though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not an advocate of changing recipes but in this case you absolutely must! Double it because you won't have enough to go around. This is incredible and so simple to make. I doubt I will ever eat regular cole slaw again. I just made this for company tonight. It's in the fridge now calling my name. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was very skeptical about this recipe at first but it turned out quite tasty with a unique flavor. I realized I had no sugar in the last minute so I subbed with maple syrup which worked out. Also I used only one ramen noodle package with quarter a stick of butter (about 2 TB. Delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love this dish! Its so tasty, I made it exactly as the recipe states. This is a big hit every time I make it. Paula Rocks, item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe and every bbq I go too, it is what the hosts request. The only thing I do different if that I spray a baking sheet, put the smashed noodles on it and bake at 350 until golden, usually 5 - 10 mins and I use 3 bags of broccoli slaw with the dressing Paula Deen suggests and 2 packages of the soup mix. Comes out great!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe, but I switched things up a little. I replaced the almonds and sunflower seeds with pine nuts that I sauteed with the noodles. I also julienned half of a granny smith apple and added that to broccoli mixture. I reduced the sugar by half as I do not like it too sweet. I replaced the apple cider vinegar with rice vinegar and 2 Tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. I also tossed in a 1 teaspoon of celery seeds and 1 teaspoon of poppy seeds into the dressing mixture. It was so good I ate half of it before I even got it to the table. My sons enjoyed it as well and they are not fans of any kind of slaw. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I can't stop making this (& eating it!). It is so super yummy & even my picky 2 year old loves eating the "green & orange sticks." I made a few adjustments - only used 1/2 c canola oil and used both packets of oriental seasonings to make the dressing. For the salad I only use 1/2 stick of butter to saute the ramen noodles & instead of sauteing the almonds, I roast them in the oven at 325 degrees for 5-7 minutes (stirring once). I think I even like this better the next day. This is definitely a keeper!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

absolutely a "go to" for tailgates and other gatherings. I always use oriental ramen and I love the idea of mandarin oranges with a little juice in the dressing. Always use dark brown sugar. Enjoy item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very Easy, Very Flavorful, Very Yummy! I loved this especially for a quick side dish. Not sure why the person below said too much half n half, there's no half n half in this recipe. I added a little less butter and used Chicken Ramen noodles instead of Oriental since that's what they had at the store, it was great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really bland. I added raisins to the dressing so they plumped up before adding the broccoli and they were really flavorful, but that's about it. I ended up adding a ton of salt and pepper and it still just tasted oily and flavorless. there are better broccoli salads out there. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe for a quick salad that delicious. This is the second time that I have made this one and it is a big hit again. Make sure you buy a nice quality Broccoli Slaw. The first one I bought was more a cole slaw texture. This bag had larger, longer (almost looks like sprouts) pieces and it is much better. Enjoy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This broccoli slaw is light on flavor and SO heavy on fat that it's just gross. It's slimy in your mouth, there's just no need for all that butter and half and half. If you care at all about your health, or like very flavorful veggie recipes, look further. This isn't the one. I tasted it, then ended up throwing it out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Outstanding! Simple and flavorful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was hiding in the kitchen eating this! SO GOOD! I didn't have the broccoli slaw, but was searching for a recipe to go with extra cabbage from fish tacos and this was it. I'm definitely making this recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a DELICIOUS, crunchy way to enjoy coleslaw. I don't even LIKE coleslaw, but I could eat this entire recipe myself. Tastes best if eaten once served - if leftoever it gets a little soggy. There will NOT be many (if any) leftovers! This reicpe is a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really tasty! Made this a few times and everyone always loves it. Got 2 requests for the recipe, so I referred them to this site. The only changes I made was to use vegetable oil instead of canola, and I left out the sunflower seeds & green onions. The only drawback is that it's not that great as a leftover. Tastes better if eaten the same day as it's prepared. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Definitely brown the almonds and noodles in butter to bring out the nutty flavor. As suggested by another cook, I also added mandarin oranges and softened the dressing by adding a small amount of the orange liquid.

I don't like the packet for dressing but love it in the soups.I just usually buy a bottle of sesame dressing or oriental dressing and use that instead.

Perfect in the summer because there's no mayonnaise to spoil! A couple of tips: Reduce the butter. (I use one stick for 4 pkgs ramen noodles and there's enough to brown the noodles.) After the noodles are done, sprinkle the extra seasoning packet over the cooked noodles. The butter helps the seasoning stick to the noodles. Cut back on the sugar and oil by about 2T each and increase the vinegar 2T. Taste and adjust. To me, the recipe is easy to make the night before. Take the bags of broccoli slaw, bowls of dressing and cooked noodles to your gathering. Open the slaw and put in serving bowl, pour the dressing over and top with noodles. If you put the noodles on too early they will absorb the liquid and become soft (yuk)! I don't think this is a good leftover dish because the noodles absorb the liquid. Also, I don't add the almonds or sunflower seeds and it tastes just fine without them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed dressing recipe.....Lacked flavor, was just blah! After letting it sit for a day, I ended up adding 3 Tablespoons of soy sauce (can add more or less, to kickup the flavor) and mixing it in well. It did taste better. Maybe would be beter with both packages of seasoning from ramen packages. Since I also feel e/o can do without the fried ramen noodles, I crushed the noodles and browned under broiler for about a minute (or just toast in oven for about 5 minutes at 350 degrees). item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this awesome recipe one night, and had to make it again the next! It was awesome, everyong loves it! Thanks item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this to sneak some veggies in for my husband. I made this exactly as stated in the recipe, but like other reviewers have said, you can cut the butter and oil and it would be fine. Might even intensify the vinegar and oriental flavors. Excellent side dish for a barbecue dinner. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was real suprise, didn't know about brocolli slaw, this will on the table at least once a month during summer months. We loved it. Thank you Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've seldom given a five star rating; my standards are high. This came darn close. My husband first wouldn't try it because he can't eat cabbage. I assured him this was broccoli -- no cabbage. He tried it and said, "DELICIOUS." I agree and will be proud to serve it to guests (& give credit due to Paula and her friends). item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't normally like cole slaw, but this is fabulous and the perfect summer dish! I omitted the green onions and added craisins--fabulous! item not reviewed by moderator and published
All I have to say is my 4 and 3 year can't get enough... I bake the noodles with light spray 350 8 mins... I use splenda instead of sugar... I also don't use as much oil (just make up the difference with water) when I just make if for my family... and it is really good... But I have to say Ms. Paula I give the original recipe a 10 ++ amazing everywhere I take this there is nothing left and everyone wants the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best slaw recipe I have ever had and requested the most at church suppers item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this with a lot less butter. I even think that putting the broken noodles with a light olive oil spraying in the oven might work. I added a drop, and I mean a drop, of sesame oil to the dressing for an asian flavor. I also dressed the broccoli first.Then right before serving added the "cruchies". Yummmmmmy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Instead of the ramen noodles and butter, I use crunchy chow mein noodles. You get all the crunch without the whopping amount of butter Paula's recipe calls for. item not reviewed by moderator and published
To make this a waist-friendly dish simply omit the noodles, butter and cut the oil down to 1/8 of a cup (or omit all together but the oil does help the dressing coat the slaw). If using noodles just use some canola spray in a non-stick pan and the noodles will toast up just fine. I added a tablespoon of soy sauce along with some ginger, garlic powder and cayenne pepper to create more of an "oriental" flavor as the seasoning packet I used was chicken flavored. Am going to try just using chicken bouillon next time since that is typically what the Ramen style noodle chicken flavor packets contain anyway. To keep noodles from getting soggy make sure you toss them in right before serving. Everyone at the bar-b-que loved this dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not a big cole slaw fan, but this broccoli slaw is really good and easy to make. Your friends will be impressed! item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading some reviews- I made this with a few changes. But kept the same for the most part. The best slaw ever! Goes perfect with pulled pork sandwiches. item not reviewed by moderator and published
awesome recipe! i made some changes though- i skipped the whole butter and nuts/noodles thing, this is what i did: -broccoli slaw -1 oriental seasoning packet -1/2 cup oil -1/4 cup apple cider vinegar -2 packets sweet n low saved a landslide of calories and time, and was delicious!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
A great way to get veggies into the family! looking forward to trying it with red pepper, chicken, raisins, and / or anything else I think sounds good. Leave it to Paula to always work in a big chunk of butter, but that is her cooking. I prefer to cut down on the butter and oil but thats a personal thing and mostly dependent on how much other goodies I am adding. Pecans make a good nut to add in place of the others. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This seriously is a delicious, tasty and addictive salad! It's a quick and easy salad to prepare too. I don't know how there was anything negative to say, unless you just don't like the taste of the dressing. Due to the fact that it's only my husband and I, I cut the recipe in half and only used 1 T of butter as I don't feel so much is needed. Otherwise, I made it just the way it said. I've already made it twice and added shredded turkey the second time round, making it a main salad with protein. My husband, who loves Chinese food, absolutely loves it!! I do too! I plan on taking this to my next potluck! I know that everyone will love it! Don't listen to the people that gave it bad reviews... it's not bad.. it is soo good! I hear people say that it gets soggy, well, of course the noodles won't have their original crunch, but the entire salad stays crunchy because of the broccoli slaw part. That is the crunchy part the next day! My husband likes it when it first gets mixed together and I like it after it has sit for a while or 24 hours so that the flavors meld a little more! Regardless, it's good and you'd be missing out if you didn't try it!! NUMMY!! I will be adding shredded chicken next! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The English language doesn't offer the right word to describe this salad! It is so GREAT! The flavor is so good that I find myself craving it! I would rather have a bowl of this salad than chocolate...steak...5 star restaurant food...you name it...I like this better! Did that convince you to try it? I like to put leftover cut up chicken in to kick it up a notch! Thanks Paula...I have a new obsession! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I loved this recipe! Not only was it easy, it was so good! It is very economical for any occation. I do agree that it is a little oily so I also cut the oil down to1/2 cup and that made the right consistancy and taste. This is definatly a crowd pleaser! item not reviewed by moderator and published
To all of you "NEGATIVE" people out there about the fat content - I just have to say this: Sorry but some things ARE going to have more fat content and that's that. Get over it. Try controlling your diet and maybe splurge on some goodness for once (i.e. - maybe cut out that danish in the morning or that big fat cut of cake for dessert...no fast foods!) Think about all those great vitamins this salad has!! Throw in some more veggies! I am 5'6", 115 lbs. My cholesterol and triglycerides are perfect. My blood pressure is, too. At 50, I?m in my prime. I EAT FAT!!!!! I LOVE IT!!! I ALWAYS use butter - sorry, but no fake crap for me. I use whipping cream in my eggs; I eat the skins from poultry (and try to steal every one elses.) MODERATION IS THE KEY TO ALL HEALTH! Thanks, Paula, for letting the world know that it's OK to have some butter! OK - off my soap box. I'm going to go grill up a nice juicy steak and enjoy every wonderful drip of fat from it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super easy to make. My husband loved it. This is a keeper. We didn't mix the dressing until we served it, that way it will be crunchy when you eat it. This is a good tip if you are packing it for a lunch or potluck. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was looking for something different for dinner one evening, so I tried this cole slaw. My entire family loved the salad. The flavors just explode in your mouth. I did make one change in the recipe. Instead of using butter with the noodles I used a little bacon drippings. I have made the recipe both ways at it is a winner. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVE PAULA BUT THIS RECIPE WAS AWFUL!! NO TASTE!! SOUNDED GOOD BUT NOT ENOUGH FLAVOR FOR ME. I ADDED MORE SUGAR AND APPLE VINAGER DID HELP. ADD NOODLES JUST BEFORE SERVING, THEY WILL GET SOGGY. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipie for my parents, both picky eaters, and they both loved it. My mom was sure to tell me to save that recipie! I made the full recipie except I used both flavor packets from the ramen. It was all eaten up by three of us in under 24 hours. (And there were sad faces when people were informed it was all gone ... ) The flavors were wonderful but it was a bit oily for me. So next time I will not use as much oil and will probably toast the almonds and ramen under the broiler with a little butter flavored pam or something. I might cut back on the brown sugar a tad too. All recipies need a little tweaking, but this one comes close to perfect from the get go. I'll be using this as a pot luck recipie for sure since it's so simple and yummy!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I absolutely loved it! Since it's just my boyfriend and I, I cut the recipe in half. I estimated splitting the dressing ingredients in half as best I could and eveything came out wonderful. One review said the dressing is a bit too oily, so I mixed the vinegar, sugar, and seasoning first...then added oil to my liking. Oh, I omitted the sunflower seeds. The apple cider vinegar and the brown sugar give it it's wonderful taste. Next time I might add in some cubed chicken. Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this salad with a few adjustments and not only is it good, it's good for you! Use organic ramen noodles...instead of cooking them in the skillet, put them along with the slivered almonds under the broiler just until brown. Don't use the ramen noodle seasoning packet...to high in sodium. Use a healthy Asian bottled dressing. And best of all...add 3 cups of cooked, cubed chicken breast. I also added the sliced onions to the entire salad. Enjoy this version... item not reviewed by moderator and published
