    1. In a large bowl, combine salad ingredients and set aside. Next, combine dressing ingredients mixing well. Pour dressing over salad and toss together until salad is evenly coated. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes before serving (allowing flavours to blend and ramen to soften a bit). Enjoy!

    This is what a search on syrup revealed so maybe she does mean a sugar syrup. - In cooking, a syrup or sirup (from Arabic: شراب‎; sharab, beverage, wine, via Latin: sirupus)[1] is a thick, viscous liquid consisting primarily of a solution of sugar in water, containing a large amount of dissolved sugars but showing little tendency to deposit crystals. The viscosity arises from the multiple hydrogen bonds between the dissolved sugar, which has many hydroxyl (OH) groups, and the water. Syrups can be made by dissolving sugar in water or by reducing naturally sweet juices such as cane juice, sorghum juice, or maple sap. Corn syrup is made from corn starch using an enzymatic process that converts it to sugars. Technically and scientifically, the term syrup is also employed to denote viscous, generally residual, liquids, containing substances other than sugars in solution.  -  06 Feb 2013
