This coleslaw ramen noodle salad is the perfect meal prep lunch!  I am obsessed with meal prepping: cooking large batch recipes on the weekend so I can enjoy easy meals throughout the week.  You can check out all my meal prep friendly recipes here.

Salads can sometimes be difficult to meal prep because lettuce and spinach tends to wilt in the fridge over time, especially once dressing is added.  But this simple ramen noodle salad really stands up to meal prep. 

It’s made with hearty veggies like cabbage and carrots, and actually tastes better after a day or two in the fridge!  So make ahead, and enjoy within a day or two

What’s In This Ramen Noodle  Salad Recipe with Coleslaw?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Ramen Noodle Soup: I love this vegan and gluten free ramen noodle soup which is made with rice noodles and a miso based sauce. It has great flavor and is perfect for those who are trying to eat more vegan or gluten free. If you don’t have any dietary restrictions, then you can use any ramen noodles you desire.
  • Coleslaw Mix – I used a traditional cabbage/carrot mix, but use any flavor you prefer!
  • Lightly Salted Peanuts: for a yummy, nutty crunch!  I like to use only unsalted or lightly salted peanuts when I cook. Lightly salted peanuts won’t alter the taste of my recipes, which I prefer.  I will always choose a lower sodium option if available!
  • Light Sesame Oil: The sesame oil gives the perfect sweet flavor to the sauce of this dish. Light sesame oil is traditional in a lot of Asian dishes, and will give your noodles the perfect flavor.
  • Rice vinegar: I love this sweet & tangy rice vinegar, I always keep this seasoned vinegar stocked in my pantry for dressings and salads.
  • Maple Syrup
  • Sesame Seeds – I love adding a handful of these sesame seeds to finish off this salad recipe! These seeds add a nice crunch and light flavor to the ramen.
