So today I thought it would be a good idea to post the easy salad I served with it: Asian Coleslaw with Ramen!
Asian Coleslaw with Ramen is another one of those tried and true easy recipes that has been around forever in many different variations. The first time I had it was at a potluck sometime in the 80's and I remember going crazy for it. The toasty nuttiness of the almonds, the crunch of the vegetables and the enormous YUMM factor of the salad dressing was like a symphony in my mouth!
And together with those crab cakes.... well, all I can tell you, is that it's DAMN good!
