Asian Slaw

This is a slaw you just can't stop munching on.
I like that I can make it ahead of time.
 Gather ingredients: broccoli slaw, sunflower seeds,
sliced almonds, green onions and a packet of ramen noodles.
Whisk or shake in a jar the dressings ingredients:
oil, sugar, vinegar and the reserved flavor packet.
 Crush the noodles and put into the bowl.
 Toast the almonds in the toaster oven for about
5-10 minutes at 350, until fragrant.
 Add the broccoli slaw to the bowl.
Chop the green onions and add to the bowl along
with the sunflower seeds and almonds.
Combine the dressing well and pour over. 
Give it a good toss. Taste and try not to eat 
too much. Put in a sealed container in the
refrigerator until ready to serve or overnight. 

Asian Slaw
2 (3-oz) packages beef-flavored 
ramen noodle soup mix
2 (8.5-oz) packages broccoli slaw mix
(or 16-oz bag cole slaw mix) 
1 C sliced almonds, toasted
1 C sunflower kernels
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1/2 C sugar
3/4 C vegetable oil
1/3 C white or apple cider vinegar
flavor packets from soup mix
Remove the flavor packets from the soup mix
and set aside. Crush the noodles and place 
them in the bottom of a large bowl. 
Top with the slaw mix; sprinkle with almonds, 
sunflower kernels and green onions.
Whisk together the contents of the
 flavor packets, sugar, oil and vinegar. 
Poor over the slaw. Cover and chill 24 hours.
 Toss before serving.

tip: can add cut-up shrimp or chicken for
a complete meal. (about 2-4 C)
tip: I cut the recipe in half in the above photos.
for the oil ~ half of 3/4 C = 6T
for the vinegar ~ half of 1/3 C = 2T+2t
