This Crunchy Romaine Toss is incredibly delicious! We had this at a friend’s house and Chicken Legs LOVED it. He took one bite and said, “This salad is DELICIOUS!” He couldn’t stop talking about it all night. I made sure to get the recipe so I could make it for him at home.

This Crunchy Romaine Toss is super easy to make. Romaine lettuce, broccoli, ramen noodles, walnuts and a sweet and sour dressing that will knock your socks off it is so good! You can prep everything ahead of time and toss it all together right before serving. I kept everything in the refrigerator separately so we could have a salad with lunch or dinner all week.

This salad is great for dinner parties or tailgating this Fall. We make this at least once a month. It is great with some grilled chicken thrown on top for a quick lunch or dinner too!

  1. I love this Salad, I make it at least once a week, I make a big batch for leftovers, when plated
    I add Bacon cut up into pieces, Hard Boiled Egg, Cherry Tomatoes,the add in extra’s are unlimted to
    what you can add, The Dreesing I only add half for the sugar that the recipe calls for it is fine
    with the 1/2 cup but a little too sweet and I am watching my Sugar intake,when I double dressing
    recioe I use 1/2 cup and this makes plenty for the left overs I am going to have I just keep in fridge.
    I actually put in a squirt bottle to store and to use to put on salad when served to keep from using to
    much. I have used this Website for about 2 weeks now and have made about 4 different recipes and
    have yet to find one I have not liked, Tonight is the Quiche Pizza Recipe cant wait for Suppa,

  2. I have been making crunchy romaine toss for about 10 years but 2 things are not on this recipe which I think really make it so good!
    1.) Dried cranberries and 2.) green onions (scallions).
    I don’t add the walnuts because I don’t like nuts in my salads but that’s personal preference.

  3. I always sauté the nuts and crushed noodles with butter AND the beef flavor packet from the ramen. So good! I also sub chopped pecans for walnuts and add some chopped green onion. Been making this forever to rave reviews and everyone always asks for the recipe.

  4. Quick question – are the walnuts toasted or just raw (like you bake with). Thanks! Plan to make this for Memorial Day

  5. I used to make this ALL the time, back in the 90's. Only difference was the addition of a bunch of green onions with the broccoli and lettuce.
