Hi, Kristy in the Rada Kitchen. Hey, what’s easy, cheap and fast? Ramen noodles of course! But now you can go beyond the usual broth and noodles and make recipes with our “Oodles & Oodles of Ramen Noodles”. You can make everything from soups, salads, main dishes, crunchy snacks and sweet desserts. There’s over 120 recipes for ramen noodles. Today we’re going to make the Simple Antipasto Salad.

The ingredients are 1/4 cup sliced onion, 2 3 ounce packages of ramen noodles (any flavor), a 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni or I am going to use the mini’s, a 1/2 cup ripe olives, Italian salad dressing and then you will need 4 cups of water to boil the noodles in. In a medium sauce pan over high heat you’ll cook just the noodles and you will want to remove the seasoning packet from the noodles, you can use that later. I’m going to put this in the water and I am going to cook it for about 3 minutes. You can break them up real course they don’t have to be chopped or anything. Now while those are cooking, I’m going to thinly slice this onion. We only need a fourth cup so I am not going to take too much. Now this salad will be ready to serve right away or you can put it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.

So I boiled my noodles for about 3 minutes, I drained them, I rinsed them in cold water and I drained them again and now I am ready to add the ingredients. So I am going to add the olives, the pepperoni and the onion. And then you’ll drizzle it with the Italian dressing and then you’ll toss it lightly. And that’s the Simple Antipasto Salad from the cookbook, “Oodles & Oodles of Ramen Noodles.”
