Packet ramen noodles are just “plain blah” bland, flavorless and boring. Revamp this cheap college student food and bring ‘sexy’ back to the ramen noodles. Make an Asian inspired ramen noodle salad with carrots, scallions, cucumbers tossed with fresh cilantro mint and basil and dressed with a spicy-sweet dressing heaped into a lettuce bowl filled with chicken-chestnut salad! Not only a re-vamp of ramen noodles but a new twist to the classic lettuce wraps! A burst of flavors and contrasting textures!
