Blue Ribbon Recipe

Wow! So many wonderful flavors and texture combinations in this recipe. The bit of cilantro adds a peppery taste. You have a crunch from the ramen noodles and slivered almonds. The dressing really stands out, though. The nutty sesame flavor with the sweetness of the rice wine vinegar really stands out. The dressing would be great on any salad. The Test Kitchen
