I love this recipe because it has a lot of different flavor combinations and the noodles give it a crunchy texture. Best of all, it is quick to prepare and it is perfect for picnics and potlucks, or any gathering! NOTE – Don’t be afraid to add extra veggies/nuts – I use broccoli and cauliflower. Sunflower seeds are also very good in this salad.
1 (16oz.) Package Coleslaw Mix
5 Green Onions
1 C. Broccoli, chopped fine
1/2 C. Butter/Margarine 1/4 C. Sesame Seeds
2 (3oz.) Packages Ramen Noodles, broken
1 (2oz.) Package Slivered Almonds
DRESSING: (use more or less to suit your taste – I like less oil and more vinegar)
1/2C. Vinegar 1/4C. Oil
1T. Soy Sauce
SPECIAL NOTE: Being I love crunchy food – I mix my ramen noodle mixture in prior to serving – If I feel I am not going to eat all of the coleslaw – I save my crunchy stuff in a special container – then mix it when I go to eat it……So I have it on hand I ALWAYS make double batches of the noodle mixture and my dressing.
Mix sugar, vinegar, oil, and soy sauce in jar and shake until well mixed. Chill
Slice onions, then add to the slaw and broccoli – mix and set aside. Melt butter in skillet; add seasoning packet, sesame seeds, almonds and noodles while stirring consistently, sauté until lightly browned once browned place on a cookie sheet spreading it out then set aside and allow to cool. Just before serving, mix everything together and serve.
