This broccoli slaw in delicious - given to me by a friend so I don't know where it originated. It's better freshly made and not refrigerated. You can buy broccoli slaw in the prepackaged lettuce area of most supermarkets.
- 1 (12 ounce) package broccoli coleslaw mix
- 2 bunches green onion tops, chopped
- 2 (3 ounce) packages chicken-flavored ramen noodles
- 1 cup slivered almonds
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup oil (I used olive)
- 1⁄2 cup white vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- Mix slaw, chopped onions, noodles only from Ramen noodles (crush them with your hands), almonds and sunflower seeds together in bowl.
- Make dressing w/oil, vinegar, sugar, and add the 2 packets of flavoring from the Ramen noodles.
- Add dressing to your taste- I used about half.
- Note: Instead of white vinegar and sugar, I used 1/2 cup of flavored rice vinegar.
I have made this twice now, and it's been a HIT each time. I use 1/3 cup each of olive oil, vinegar & sugar for the dressing and then have added a teaspoon of sesame oil. I've used a combo of Oriental Ramen and Chicken Ramen which has been fine. I can only find dry roasted sunflower seeds, but they have fit well. I toasted the almonds which I think adds some good flavor. Both times I've made this, I put the slaw & green onions in a big bowl, put the nuts & ramen in tupperware, and kept the dressing in a mason jar until I was at the party, then mix it all together when I arrive so the ramen stays crunchy.
This was such an interesting twist on a salad! We all really enjoyed it. I made a couple of changes- I used 1/3 cup each of olive oil, sugar and red wine vinegar. I used Vidalia onion instead of the green because that's all I hand on hand. Thanks for a new family favorite that I'm betting will be even tastier for lunch tomorrow!!
I'll add my review to the many others here. This is delicious, and especially quick and easy to make. I used one reviewer's tip of 1/3 cup of olive oil, sugar and rice vinegar, which was exactly the right amount of dressing. The other thing I did was toast the almonds, which added some great flavor and crunch. It's a favorite, already!
