Well, I can’t say I’ve tried making this one. It looked like a lot of work and, as I recall, it disappeared in the blink of an eye in our family! But if you are feeling nostalgic and ambitious: here is the recipe … have at it! And let me know what time dinner will be served. I’ll be there on time!
Here is the Chinese Crunch Salad mom used to make. You may remember that, originally, she used to fry up those Mai Fun noodles a small batch at a time. They would make a big mess and cool noise when they puffed up. Eventually she discovered she could save herself a lot of greasy clean up, by using this version of the recipe which swapped in Ramen noodles in place of the fried noodles.
This ground breaking discovery was a turning point in her career, finally freeing her to devote more time to writing her first novel. Murder mystery readers worldwide thank you, Top Ramen! Domo Arigatou Gozaimas ! (That’s for Monica’s amusement. ) 🙂
Another note: You can buy one of those broiler chickens for less than $5 , shred the chicken off it, and turn this into a Chinese Chicken Salad in a jiffy!
