DIRECTIONS

  • Mix cabbage, scallions and carrots in a large bowl, set aside.
  • Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Break noodles in small pieces and stir to brown and get crispy, along with sesame seeds, almonds and sunflower seeds. Seeds and nuts will start to brown. Remove from pan, drain and cool on paper towels. Or alternatively, place on baking sheet-without the butter, and broil for just a few minutes, watching carefully so they don't burn(lower your fat intake!).
  • To make dressing, mix together all ingredients in a jar with lid and shake to dissolve the sugar. Dressing can be made a day ahead of time.
  • Toss together all salad ingredients and add dressing, just before serving. You may have dressing leftover to use for another salad.
