Oriental Ramen Broccoli Coleslaw
photo by SharonChen
- Ready In:
- 2 (3 ounce) packages beef-flavor ramen noodles
- 2 (8 1/2 ounce) packages broccoli coleslaw mix
- 1 cup toasted slivered almonds
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1⁄2 bunch green onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup oil
- 1⁄3 cup white vinegar
- Before opening noodles, crush into 1 inch pieces. Open packages and set aside flavor packets.
- Place noodles in bottom of large serving bowl. Top noodles with broccoli slaw, then sprinkle with almonds and sunflower kernels, and green onions.
- In a separate bowl combine sugar, oil, vinegar, and flavor packets from noodles. Pour over slaw, cover and chill up to 24 hours.
- Toss before serving.
Several points: 1) If you want the noodles to be crisp, why would you ever dress the salad for 24 hours. 2) Why would you need close to 1.25 cups of dressing for 8.5 oz of broccoli slaw? I used nearly 2/3 of the dressing and that was far too much dressing. 3) There was way too much sugar in the dressing. I used cane vinegar which is the harshest flavored vinegar and that still could not offset all of that sugar. 4) 510 calories for a serving? It is way too much oil. This is a poor recipe.
Let me start by saying that I've never really found a coleslaw that I like, but I keep trying! This one was really good though. I ran out of normal white vinegar so I had to substitute with rice vinegar, but other than that I followed it exactly.<br/><br/>A couple of things<br/>1) This makes a ton, unless you're making it for a picnic I'd cut it in half<br/>2) The almonds add a bit of sweetness so I think the amount of sugar can probably be reduced a bit<br/>3) It be nice to keep the nuts out until right before you serve it for more crunch<br/><br/>Those are my only real thoughts, thanks for the recipe!

We have been doing a very similar recipe for about 30 years now.. we don't use sunflower seeds, but we do add mandarin oranges at the end and some time to make it even healithier (LOL) we chop up some avacago and toss it in too! We have also come up with a really delicious dressing if you ever want to change it up. Asian-Honey Vinegarette : 1/2 c. avacado oil, 1/4c. honey, 1/4 c. rice vinegar, 2 t. soy sauce and 1/4 t. toasted sesame oil. Try it out, it's AMAZING!!
