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!
