Summer Salad Swap



Oriental Cole Slaw


Ingredients
1 head of cabbage (I like to buy pre shredded cole slaw for convenience.)
3 green onions (optional)
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 package slivered almonds (4oz. or 1 cup)
1 package chicken Ramen Noodles
3/4 cup oil
6 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoons soy sauce

Directions
Break up and separate Ramen noodles. Brown sesame seeds, slivered almonds, and Ramen noodles in oven at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes, check frequently to avoid burning. Remove and cool before adding to cabbage. Chop cabbage and green onions. Add toasted sesame seeds, almonds and noodles to cabbage; stir together.

Dressing
Mix oil, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and chicken flavor mix from Ramen noodles. Mix ingredients well and add to salad about 10 minutes before serving. If you add the dressing to the salad and it sits too long it can lose some of its crunchiness.


Here's the "Pioneer Woman Shot" of all of the ingredients.
The bag of slivered almonds that was available was just a little bigger than the normal amount I use, but I added them all to this salad and it was just fine.

Maybe the secret ingredient, this little packet adds a lot of flavor

Crisp, crunchy, tangy and sweet.  Enjoy!

Thanks to Mel at The Larson Lingo for hosting the fun salad swap!
