  • 1 cup red cabbage, thinly shredded
  • 3/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 3-4 scallions, sliced
  • 1 Hass avocado, small diced, optional
  • For the dressing:

Directions

For the dressing

STEP 1:

Whisk together all ingredients and set aside.

For the salad

STEP 1:

In boiling water, cook ramen noodles til al dente, about 2 minutes. The noodles will absorb the dressing, so it is important that they are al dente. Once done, rinse under cold water to keep them from cooking further. Set aside in a medium bowl.

STEP 2:

In a cast iron skillet set under medium-high heat, char your corn, turning every few minutes to get all sides. Let cool for a few minutes before cutting the kernels off.

STEP 3:

Pour the dressing over noodles and mix til noodles are coated. Add in your corn, cabbage, cilantro, scallions, avocado, and season to taste. Enjoy!
