Oriental Cole Slaw

Let me start by saying that I am NOT a big fan of mayo... so I don't usually enjoy cole slaw.  This recipe, however, does not have mayo... is fast, fresh, crunchy, and totally addictive!  My parents love it!  It comes together in a snap and is great for large crowds or pot lucks.  Since there's no dairy in it, you don't have to worry about letting it sit out.

Ingredients:  Serves 10 - 12
  • 1 (14 oz) pkg. prepared cole slaw, shredded
  • 2 cups shredded purple cabbage
  • ½ cup sesame or sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 pkgs. Ramen Noodles (remove seasoning packet)
  • ½ cup green onions chopped
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
 Tip - you could make this a complete meal with the addition of some cooked chicken!

Step-by-Step:
Melt butter in a skillet.  Crumble Ramen noodles and brown them along with the nuts and seeds. Cool and drain on paper towel.
4 Tbsp butter (1/2 cup)
2 packages of ramen noodles, broken up (discard flavor packets)

1/2 cup slivered almonds

Cool
Mix cole slaw mix and purple cabbage with onions and the cooled nuts and noodle mixture.
1 (14oz) package of cole slaw mix
2 cups shredded purple cabbage
1/2 cup chopped green onions

Pretty, huh?

Dressing - Mix sugar, oil, soy sauce and vinegar in a jar and shake well!  Add the dressing to the slaw and toss at the very last minute!!!
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup canola oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp soy sauce
Now seal up the dressing components and find someone to shake-shake-shake them for you!  They will form an emulsion.
Dress the salad with the dressing just before serving so everything won't get soggy.
Tip - This recipe can easily be cut in half for a normal household.  This size (as written) works well for bringing to a party/event.  Serves 10 - 12
