Asian Spinach Salad

This is an awesome salad. I love it because it doesn't use the Ramen noodle seasoning package like most recipes similar to this. The seasoning package for Ramen noodles contains a lot of MSG, and I do not handle that stuff am excited for this recipe. -Kristin

8 T. olive oil
4 T. sugar
3 T. unseasoned rice vinegar
3 T. soy sauce

2 (3 oz.) package Ramen noodles, coarsely broken 1 c. slivered almonds
3 T. sesame seeds
1 (10 oz.) package ready to use baby spinach
1 large bunch of green onions, chopped
  • Whisk 6 T. olive oil, sugar, vinegar and soy sauce in small bow to blend; season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Heat remaining 2 T. oil in skillet over medium high heat and add the noodles, almonds and seeds. Stir continuously until browned. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes.
  • In a large bowl mix together the spinach, green onions and the noodle mixture.
  • Stir in the sauce mixture.
