Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. vinegar (my mom likes apple cider vinegar, I prefer rice vinegar)
1/4 c. oil
1-2 Tbsp water
Seasoning packets from ramen noodles

In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, vinegar, oil, & the seasoning packets from the ramen noodles. Add water if needed to adjust consistency.

Toss dressing together with salad mix and refrigerate.

NOTE: The dressing will make the nuts soggy, so I find it best to add the nuts just before serving, or allowing people to add them themselves (in case of nut allergies, or just personal preference

I got this recipe from my makes a great side-dish for any summer meal! I like it even better the next day, after the dressing has softened the noodles.

1 bag pre-mixed coleslaw

2 packages Ramen noodles, chicken-flavored

1 c. each of sunflower seeds & cashews (unsalted is best)
