Oriental Salad

I’ve had this recipe at lots of different picnics and potlucks, and I always love it. It’s so versatile, and it transports really well. If you’re making it the night before, leave out the Ramen noodles, almonds, and sesame seeds. They will get soggy if left in the salad too long.

  1. I just tasted something similar to this salad for the first time yesterday! It was delicious and different from the usual salads. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love this salad and make it a lot, but have never made it with water chestnuts, I bet that adds a nice crunch.
