Every year I have the honor of catering the end of semester lunch for Dr. Marcie Ferris and all her wonderful students. I started making this slaw a couple of years ago knowing that Ramen is a staple in the college students diet. It's been a hit ever since. Best if you make it a day before you are serving it. Gives time for the noodles to soften.
