Saturday Recipe Corner- Ramen Salad

photo 2 (1)Recipe by Brenda Maggio

Crowd sourcing is my friend. I rely on it for a lot of things. I like getting other people’s opinions, suggestions, and advice. So, I will often ask people for recipes for Saturdays here on Blue Skirt. When I asked my best friend for a favorite recipe, she immediately mentioned this one. She uses it for family gatherings, parties, etc., because it is fast and cheap to make, and yummy.

I have to admit I had my doubts when I saw the ingredients list, but one bite and I was sold. The recipe listed makes enough for a family gathering. This is a perfect summer recipe and is super easy to make!

One precaution: this recipe has a short shelf life, about three days in the fridge after the day of preparation.
