Ramen Noodle Cole Slaw

Years ago I was invited to a school luncheon at someones home. Among the food that was served was this cole slaw that I just couldn’t get enough of. For the life of me I couldn’t figure out just what was in it so I asked the hostess if she would share the recipe with me. Much to my surprise the main ingredient in it was Ramen Noodles from the Ramen Noodle packages.

I know that might sound odd or maybe even disgusting to you but since that luncheon I have made it many times for various occasions and each time there’s not a bite left in the bowl. It’s just that good.

So if you’re trying to come up with a salad to serve at your Labor Day BBQ this weekend try this, I’m sure everyone will love it.

Ramen Noodle Cole Slaw

1 package coleslaw mix
1/2-1 cup roasted & salted sunflower seeds
1/2-1 cup toasted almond slivers
2 pkgs. Ramen Chicken Noodles (crushed)
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced

Dressing – whisk all ingredients below together

1/2 cup oil (not olive) I use canola
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cider vinegar
2 pkgs. Ramen Chicken Seasoning

Keep dressing and dry ingredients separate until ready to serve. This makes quite a lot!

Note: There are many varieties of the Ramen Noodles. Feel free to use and try each one with the coleslaw. If you use the Asian noodles you can substitute the oil with sesame and the vinegar with rice wine vinegar.

Also don’t be shy about switching out the nuts for others, like cashews or pine nuts, etc. Be creative. Start with the version above and then play with others next time. I think you’ll find this will become one of your favorites.
