Hi, I'm Marisa Voorhees, I'm a caterer and a party planner, and I do it all gluten and dairy freely. You can find me at Today we're making a gluten-free ramen noodle salad. Now the thing about ramen noodle salad is that ramen noodles are not gluten-free. They are made with wheat flour. And they don't make really an option on the market that is a gluten-free or wheat-free right now. But, that doesn't mean we can't come up with the same delicious formula, 'cause it's really about the crunch of the noodles, and that seasoning packet that comes with those noodles that you turn into a dressing. That's what makes the ramen noodle salad. And so today we're gonna do a little workaround to make a really delicious gluten-free ramen noodle salad. So, into the salad you're going to put the standards for the ramen noodle salad, which is the shredded cabbage. And certainly too, if you want, you could add shredded carrots, you could add the broccoli slaw, whatever you like, but we'll start with shredded cabbage. We're also gonna do three chopped green onions, both the green and the white part. Now I like my salad oniony, so I'm doing three. If you're not a big onion person, then you can cut back to two, or even one, but I love the flavor that this gives, it's that onion. You're also gonna do 1/4 cup of slivered almonds, and about 2 teaspoons of sesame seeds go into there, and so you'll sprinkle all that in. Now where does the crunch come from? It comes from rice crackers. So, hooray for rice crackers. You'll find that a number of rice crackers are gluten-free, pretty much every rice cracker is, and if it's not, then they're getting a little too fancy with their formula. But, with the rice crackers, I got the tamari flavor. And now tamari is a gluten-free soy sauce, or I should say wheat-free soy sauce. Most soy sauce has wheat in it, but tamari does not, and so I always keep a bottle in the fridge, and I love to snack on tamari rice crackers. Well the tamari rice crackers you're gonna break into your salad here, crunch them up because they are gonna give that lovely crunch, like the ramen noodle, into your salad. And you can break them up into lots of little bits. I would do a couple of rows, depending on how crunchy you like your salad. So your rice crackers come in rows. So, once you've put all your ingredients in a bowl and given it a quick toss, it's now time to make the dressing. So for the dressing, there's a few ingredients that you'll find that are similar to the ones in the ramen noodle packet that will make for a very yummy dressing. Okay, so for our ramen noodle salad dressing, it's that dressing and that seasoning packet that make things so yummy, so here's what we're gonna do. We're gonna put in 2 teaspoons of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger, a whole teaspoon of ground garlic, 1 teaspoon of tamari, that's the wheat-free soy sauce, a tablespoon of rice wine vinegar, and now we're going to add to it sunflower oil, that's the one that I choose for this. About a 1/4 of a cup of sunflower oil goes in, but you could do olive oil, or any oil of your choosing. So, you'll whisk that together, or shake it in a bottle if you have a jar that you want to make it in. Do a generous pinch of salt, and a very generous pinch of ground black pepper, and you'll add that then to our gorgeous salad that's come together. Give it all a toss, and enjoy it with your favorite as is, or with your favorite meal or side dish, it makes a great side dish. Again, I'm Marisa Voorhees, the Food Sensitive Foody, thanks for watching, I wish you a delicious day.
