Oriental Cole Slaw
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 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
DIRECTIONS
  1. Before opening, crush the ramen noodles in their packages. Pour crushed noodles into bowl with coleslaw mix & nuts.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, vinegar, oil, & the seasoning packets from the ramen noodles. Add water if needed to adjust consistency.
  3. Toss dressing together with salad mix and refrigerate.
  4. 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
RECIPE BACKSTORY
I got this recipe from my mother...it 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)
