Asian Slaw - Yummy... Yummy...Yummy !!!

Janice posted this recipe back in September ... and I (Janette) made it on Sunday to take to a friend's house for Sunday dinner. It was delicious! As I call it, 'stupid easy'. I only made it 2 hours in advance, but it was still great; however, I do believe that it probably does get better when it sits for longer. Since I'm a sucker, I took a picture of it and I'm refreshing it so that you newbies can enjoy it. Thank you, Janice!! You're the queen!

I suppose that if you added chicken, pork, or beef, you could pretty much make this salad a main dish. You'll love it.

A neighbor made this last year for a community gathering...... It was the first time I ever remember the guys standing around a table telling everyone "You have to taste this salad" !!! It's easy and it is soooooo good. I usually make it up 1 1/2 days ahead of time..... it gets better and better each day....... ~~ janice ~~

Asian Slaw

1 (16oz) package of slaw mix

2 (3 oz) packages beef flavored ramen noodle soup mix (I like more noodles so I add an extra package of noodles - I don't use the 3rd flavoring packet)

1 Cup Sliced almonds, toasted

1 Cup Sunflower kernels

1 bunch Green onions, chopped

½ Cup Sugar

¾ Cup Vegetable oil

1/3 Cup Vinegar

Remove flavor pockets from soup mix and set aside; Crush noodles. Place noodles in bottom of a large bowl. Top with slaw mix; sprinkle with almonds, sunflower kernels, green onions.

Whisk together contents of flavor packets, sugar, oil & vinegar….. Pour over slaw mix.

Cover and chill 24 hours. Stir before serving……

Yields 8 - 10 servings……

Enjoy !!!

I have asked for this recipe from several people over the years and have never gotten it. So when I saw it today, and was in a cooking mood I threw it together. I used oriental Ramen noodle mix because I had it on hand. It's still yummy!

This is a delicious recipe! I usually make it with chicken ramen and add red grapes and cut up chicken breast. It always gets rave reviews!

This is great! Try it for sure! It has turned two non-coleslaw husbands into coleslaw eaters. :) (Don't worry one of them was my friend's husband, I don't have two.)
