Broccoli Slaw with Ramen Noodles Salad
Trader Joe's sells this broccoli slaw mix in the veggie section. Buy it. Your work is almost done.
Broccoli slaw is great because 90% of the work is done for you! You simply add some nuts and ramen noodles (I would eat these dry all the time in college...who hasn't?) A simple salad dressing tops the whole thing.
This was a second batch I made...this time without the green onions because I didn't have any. Still delicious!
This is a great potluck salad because it keeps, but it is also yummy for lunch or with dinner. You can add some pieces of rotisserie chicken if you wish too.
Broccoli Slaw with Ramen Noodle Salad
1 cup sliced almonds (it's best if you toast the almonds. I've made it both raw and toasted)
12 or 16 oz package broccoli slaw (Trader Joe's package is 12 ounces, I use 1 1/2 packages)
1 bunch green onions, sliced
2 packages "oriental" flavor ramen noodles, uncooked, broken up (seasoning packets reserved for the dressing)
1 cup sunflower seeds
½ cup sugar
1/3 cup white vinegar
2 packages of ramen noodle seasoning packets
½ cup vegetable oil
In a large bowl, toss almonds, broccoli slaw, green onions, noodles, and sunflower seeds to combine.
In a bowl or mason jar, whisk together the sugar and vinegar until sugar is dissolved (the original recipe said to heat the sugar and vinegar together to dissolve. I did that once and your whole kitchen smells like vinegar so I didn't the second time and it all worked out.) Add oriental flavor seasoning packets. Whisk oil into vinegar mixture.
Pour dressing over slaw mixture; toss well. Chill at least 1-2 hours or overnight. Toss before serving.
