Super simple and tasty salad that you would love to make over and over again.

- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 1⁄3 cup rice wine vinegar
- Crush ramen noodles inside the bag. Saute noodles and walnuts with olive oil in a pan at medium- high heat until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
- Mix sunflower seeds, slaw, and red onion.
- Add cooled noodles and walnuts mixture as well as the vinegar and canola oil to the slaw salad.
- Mix well and serve.
I made this recipe because I had all the ingredients however there is a missing item. It says on the directions to add canola oil to the vinegar however it is not listed so I added about 1/3 cup of oil to the vinegar, some soy sauce and sugar to taste. The result was amazing and everyone loved it. There were left overs which I was excited to take to work but woke up this morning and my husband had stayed up late and ate the rest of it. He said please make this again. Another thing is in this recipe you don't add the seasoning packet from the ramen noodles which mow makes this recipe vegetarian, an added bonus if someone in your family is vegetarian.
This was easy and tasted very good! I did tweak it a bit, I don't usually do that the first time I try a new recipe. I used scallions instead of onions, used a package of oriental roman noodles (added the flavor package to dressing), used almonds in place of walnuts, added some sesame seeds and sauteed the nuts and noodles in sesame oil. I cheated on the dressing as well, I used a bottle of Ginger Sesame dressing, added a little Splenda and thinned it out a little with Rice Wine Vinegar. OK, I changed this a lot, but it still tasted awesome!! I was trying to duplicate an Asian Slaw we tasted at a wedding...came real close too. The crunch is out of this world!! Thanks!
This was a really good salad. I especially enjoyed the walnuts and sunflower seeds in it. We had to use a lot less vinegar though. The salad was already drowning with a 1/2 cup. Maybe it's just preference, but we thought that a 1/2 cup was plenty! Still, our friends enjoyed it and went back for seconds. :D Made for PAC.
