Weight Watchers Ramen Noodle Salad for Spring
I have been a big fan of ramen noodle salad since I ate it at a family gathering years ago. The dressing for this salad calls my name.
When I started trying to lose weight, I knew this was a recipe I would need to modify so that I could continue to eat it without guilt!
Ramen Noodle Salad Weight Watchers Points Per Serving
This Weight Watchers Ramen Noodle Salad is only 5 points per serving on all three myWW plans.
That may sound like a lot, BUT this is for a really big serving of 1.5 to 2 cups of salad.
On the current WeightWatchers Program (2023), it is 5 points per serving.
Considering this salad has nuts inside…I think that is a great point amount!! It could easily be considered a meal, in my opinion.

Does it have to be rice vinegar?
You could try regular or apple cider vinegar.

Jamie, I made this salad last night for dinner and it is very good. I have one little snag that maybe you can clear up for me. I too am a WW. When I went to plug this in to the recipe builder I hit a snag with the Ramen noodle packet–it only lets you do servings and not packages and also the points were more than 5. Can you help me PLEASE. I am trying so hard to be good.
Hi, I get 13 points for a ramen noodle packet…the total points for this recipe is 31 points–divided by 6 servings equals 5 points. This is based on the ingredients/brands I used. It can vary based on what each person uses. Thanks.
what size bag of coleslaw mix?
I finely sliced a smallish head of cabbage, added a couple of shredded carrots, slivered red, orange, and yellow peppers. I omitted the season package and added about 1/2 tsp. Chic boullion. Added some red wine vinegar and a dash of sesame oil to the dressing for a more Asian zing to the dressing. Tastes delicious immediately…. hope it just gets better by dinner time. It makes so much; I have to share with my work friends that are WW….
Do you add the chicken seasoning from the package to the dressing?
Yes, the directions clearly say to add it in step 5. Thanks.
Susan Mallin says
Do u cook the ramen noodles
No, you do not, they add crunch to the salad!
Je what size cold slaw package do you use?
I have only seen one size package at the store…not sure of the ounces right now.

Love this recipe. Before I was on weight watchers I always made it but knew it had way too many points. Thanks for sharing. I also put sliced green grapes in mine.
Could you use a small amount of sesame oil in place of some of the canola? Just wondering if anyone has tried that?
Could you use oriental noodle packet or would it be too salty?
Yes the recipe calls for using the seasoning packet that is in the ramen noodle package. You can always use 1/2 of the package if you are worried about the salt content.
Currently eating this as I type! Wow- just wow! This was easy and is so delicious!
So glad you liked it! It is one of my favorite salads!

Can’t wait to give this recipe a try this week! How long will it last in the fridge, I was going to meal prep this for the week? Thank you!
It does okay for a few hours in the fridge but is better eaten fresh! The noodles will lose their crunch after a while.
This is so easy and so good! Definitely a remake fit cookouts!
I am a life long we and would love new recipes

I have made this recipe for years. The only thing I do different is I toast my Ramen noodles in the oven and put them in a container and put them on as I eat the salad. I also add chicken it’s a one bowl meal.
