I am posting the recipe as written by Paula Deen but I made a few changes. I used shredded taco cheese instead of cubed cheddar cheese. I mixed in a cup of salsa instead of topping each serving. I also used regular tostitos instead of doritos to mix in. The salad is great and very quick to make on a busy night.
This is just FABULOUS! Mainly for holidays, or special occasions. I got the recipe from my sister-in-law. She has a couple of recipes that she makes every year at holidays, and this is one of them. She gave it to me, and now, I make it for the other side of the family, and for friends. It's Great!
I recieved this recipe from my future sister-inlaw, Amy. She got the recipe from her aunt Diana. My family loves this slaw. I chilled my slaw sauce before using while preparing the other ingredients. When I made this I used white vinegar (I do not recommend Apple Cider Vinegar). I recommend using good quality Ramen noodles no off brands. I also use Sunkist Almond Accents roasted garlic caesar flavored sliced almonds. I also allowed my browned noodles, almonds and seeds to cool before mixing into the shredded slaw. Diana says "Do not pour sauce onto slaw mix until ready to serve or the noodles will become soggy".
Found this recipe and thought it sounded great. Thought some of you might like to try it too! If snickers and salad are in the same title, I just assume it can't be bad, can it? Allow 1 hour for refrigeration! For the purpose of Zaar World tour, please classify this as Midwest for the apples and the recipe in general.
This is a simple recipe but big on flavor and it even tastes better if left in the fridge a few hours to blend the flavors so I suggest to do that --- it's wonderful with a slice of tomato on top of the tuna and served between two thick slices of toasted whole grain bread or in a pita bread or served on a plate on top of a bed of lettuce --- I sometimes add in some chopped small sweet gherkin pickles or yum yum pickles also --- feel free to add in some cooked macaroni pasta and serve on a plate --- please only fresh lemon juice for this bottled is just not the same, I have left the mustard powder and Tabasco as optional I most always add it in it takes this salad to another level :)
I was shopping in Wal-Mart, when an elderly lady came up to me and just started talking about this great dessert salad that she was planning to make. I went home and tried the recipe, and my husband and children fell in love. Now we make it at least 1 time a week. There are different variations of the salad, so I have given choices in the recipe based on your preferences. The can sizes are approximate.
