Oriental Cole Slaw

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by vegan mom

I know there are a lot of other Oriental Slaw recipes out there but none of them are quite like this one. My mom makes this for every outdoor grilling function so I guess this is why I'm partial.

This was GREAT! The recipe I have been looking for! I changed one thing that has nothing to do with the ingredients, I brought the dressing to a simmer in a pan and let it cool. This seems to incorporate the oil a lot better and not oily. Thanks for posting!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces Coleslaw
  • 2 (3 ounce) packages oriental-flavor instant ramen noodles, reserve flavor packets for dressing (the Top Ramen brand is vegan)
  • 4 ounces sunflower seeds
  • 2 ounces slivered almonds
  • 1 bunch green onion, sliced
  • Dressing (use reserved flavor packets plus)

  • 13 cup sugar
  • 34 cup oil
  • 14 cup vinegar


  1. I have had this with the noodles cooked and with them raw. Raw noodles gives the slaw more crunch, but I prefer them cooked. You can still have crunch with the seeds and nuts.
  2. Either way, mix together the slaw ingredients in a large container. Whisk together the dressing ingredients and pour over the slaw mixture. Toss together. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.
  3. If you're impatient you can eat it right away. Keeps for a few days, but it's never around long enough in my house to really find out it's shelf life.
