Nutty Coleslaw

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Dustins Mom

This is the best variation I have ever had of the Ramen Noodle Coleslaw. The red pepper gives the salad a delicate sweetness, the roasted nuts, seeds and noodles adds crunch and the proportions are so well balanced that you will be asked time and again for this recipe.

I've never had a ramen salad before and this recipe makes me regret that. Delicious, extremely easy to make and flavor-packed. The changes I made were to use Splenda and olive oil and to pan roast the nuts and noodles rather than bake them. Thanks for a great version of slaw, Kim.
