Sumi Salad

Sumi Salad created by TheDancingCook

Oh, this is so good! A great "different tasting" picnic salad. Sweet and tangy, with a little crunch.

Ready In:
22mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 24 ounces packaged coleslaw mix
  • 1 cup purple cabbage, chopped
  • 8 scallions, chopped
  • 5 (3 ounce) packages ramen noodles, very broken up, use noodles only, discard flavor package
  • 8 ounces sliced almonds
  • 4 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 cup vegetable oil or 1 cup canola oil
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Accent seasoning
  • 6 -8 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

directions

  • Combine coleslaw, chopped scallions and broken noodles in very large bowl.
  • Bake almonds& sesame seeds onto ungreased cookie sheet at 300 degrees for 5-7 minutes, then toss into slaw-scallion-noodle combo bowl.
  • Mix the salad oil, sugar, Accent, rice wine vinegar, salt & pepper in separate bowl.
  • Mix into salad mixture.
  • Marinate overnight, stir occasionally.
  • *Make sure noodles are very broken up, and very soft when serving this; important to marinate overnight!
  • *I usually double the ingredients in step #3; add 1/2 of dressing to salad for overnight marination and add other half upon serving, to freshen up the salad if needed. The noodles tend to soak up the dressing overnight, especially if using 5 packages of noodles.

    My friend Catalina gave me a similar recipe years ago and I've loved it since. Couldn't find it tonight so I searched for something similar and found this one - the only changes I made were Albertson's Angel hair cabbage (for some reason this tastes best to me), 8 tablespoons sugar instead of 4 and 8 tablespoons rice wine vinegar / seasoned or plain - doesn't really matter, whatever you have on hand. I toast the almonds and sesame seeds in a pan but don't take your eyes off 'em so you don't burn 'em - I suppose it doesn't matter, oven or pan as long as you toast 'em, the flavor is worth the hassle. You can find large size containers of sesame seeds (sometimes you can find toasted but its much nicer when you toast them yourself) at Smart & Final. Henry's has large bags of slivered almonds that are pretty inexpensive as well. Love this salad. Thanks for the recipe!

    This was quite the popular item when I served it. I used 2 pkgs of broccoli slaw and 1 of coleslaw. I doubled the dressing ingredients. I will DEFINITELY lessen the amount of oil next time as I felt it was just a little too oily. I doubled the dressing ingredients and used 4 pkgs of noodles ( I would use 3 next time). I took out 2T. of the oil and subbed sesame oil for that. And used only 1T of accent and added 2T of lite soy sauce for a more asian taste along with the sesame oil. It was really loved by all!
