This salad is not your typical coleslaw — no mayonnaise, and I've added crunchy ramen noodles.

Growing up, I was never a big fan of coleslaw. I would dine out at a BBQ restaurant but would always pass on the slaw. The sweetness with a mayonnaise taste just did not go well with my taste buds.

Fast-forward 15 years, and I have a new love for it. I decided it's still coleslaw if you make it with vinegar instead of the classic mayonnaise. And by adding uncooked ramen noodles, you give a little crunch to this simple salad.
