Asian Inspired Cole Slaw





If you need something fabulous, easy, and nothing like normal cole slaw for your next party this is perfect.  If I am being honest I absolutely despise slaw.  My awesome coworker Jordan brought this to a lunch party at work, and I decided to try it... I'm so glad I did, and good thing no one told me it was "slaw" or I might of missed out!  This recipe is really simple, and you can make it the night before.  I read a couple other similar recipes, and they said not to make it until right before so it is super crunchy.  I still think it taste fabulous made the night before, and I can't make slaw during 2nd period {the period before lunch}.   

Serves 12ish
Ingredients:

2 bags slaw 
1 pkg ramen noodles, broken apart
1 bunch green onion chopped
1 pkg sliced almonds
1/4 cup sunflower kernels {you find these next to sunflower seeds in the snack aisle}
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 TBSP soy sauce
1/4 cup white wine vinegar 

Directions:

1.  Add slaw into a big bowl, with ramen, chopped onion, and almonds.  I only used the green tops....I normally omit these in recipes, but they add great flavor contrast.




2.  Brown sunflower kernels with a little bit of butter.  Allow these to cool completely before adding to the cole slaw.  

3.  Dressing time!  Combine sugar, oil, soy sauce, and vinegar in a small rubbermaid.  Shake until sugar dissolves.

4.  Add dressing to salad and enjoy!




***This is just a small amount of what this recipe really makes.

This is going to be a crazy week, but hopefully that make it go fast!
