I should call this Disappearing Cole Slaw because that is a better description. If I had read the recipe first, I might never have tasted it but give it a try. This slaw is the perfect take-along for a covered dish affair. Add the dressing at the last minute to preserve the crunch.
- 1 cup canola oil
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄3 cup white vinegar
- 6 ounces beef-flavor ramen noodles
- 1 cup slivered almonds, toasted
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 lb coleslaw mix
- 4 -8 green onions, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup carrot, matchstick
- Shake oil, sugar, vinegar, and soup seasoning packets together in a dressing blender or jar. This step can be done up to one day in advance.
- In a dry skillet, toast the almonds to a light brown. Allow almonds to cool. Place the Ramen Noodles in a zipper bag. Use a rolling pin to crush the noodles. Add sunflower seeds and cooled almonds to the crushed noodles. Do NOT refrigerate. This step can be done up to one day in advance.
- In a large serving bowl, combine the slaw mix, onions, and carrots. (I buy the pre-cut carrot matchsticks in the produce section.).
- Just before serving, add the contents of the zipper bag and dressing shaker to the slaw mix. Toss and serve immediately.
This tasted better as it sat. It is not sweet like coleslaw, but the flavor grew on me. Made for PAC, Spring 2012.
This is pretty close to the recipe I use. I have taken it to pot luck dinners and always get asked for the recipe. It is a great side dish for just about any BBQ.
