This recipe is so good. It has character with all the ingredients used. I got this from my friend, Cindy, whom I work with. Try it--it is delicious.

Top Review by Rakow

I received nothing but compliments on this salad. I replaced the cabbage with romaine lettuce used yellow onion instead of green and and replaced the almonds with water chestnuts (I didn't bake the chestnuts). Also, I used 1/3 the amount of vinegar using white instead of apple cidar and replaced the rest with water. 5 Stars...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toast almonds and sunflower or sesame seeds in butter.
  2. Cool and set aside.
  3. Break up 2 packages (uncooked Ramen noodles).
  4. Just before serving, toss slaw mix, green onions, almonds and seeds.
  5. Mix dressing ingredients in a covered container and shake well to dissolve all the sugar.
  6. (You can heat up the vinegar to help dissolve the sugar) Pour dressing just before serving.
  7. This dressing recipe is for one batch slaw mix, but I have used it for almost double the amount of slaw mix and it is plenty and still taste good.
