This colorful salad uses Top Ramen® two ways: crushed noodles bring crunch, and the Shrimp seasoning is part of an unexpectedly amazing dressing.
Preheat oven to 350°. Toast almonds on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing halfway through, until golden brown, 8–10 minutes. Let cool.
Meanwhile, remove seasoning packet from Top Ramen® and set aside. Crush noodles with your hands or a rolling pin until pieces are peanut- to walnut-size.
Vigorously whisk vinegar, oil, sugar, and ramen seasoning from reserved packet in a large bowl until sugar is dissolved. Season dressing with salt and pepper.
Add green and red cabbage, scallions, half of ramen noodles, mandarins and half of almonds to dressing; toss to combine. Top with remaining ramen, avocado, and almonds.
