I am not much of a cole slaw fan because I do not really like mayonaise. Sadly, mayonaise is one of the few things that will cause me to turn my nose up. I will and do eat most anything that is in front of me...it can be a problem.
Well now cole slaw is a major temptation thanks to my co-worker Shelley! She brought this to my birthday lunch the girls put together for me a few weeks ago. It is absolutely delicious!!! I begged for the recipe and made it this week and it did not last 48 hours...and I probably ate 3/4 of the huge bowl. The family had Dairy Queen for dinner last night and I turned it down and had this instead... OK, I did get ice cream (thanks Wawee!). It did not even last long enough to take a picture to post for you. So I share this recipe with you and take no responsibility for your lack of self control! ;-)
1-10 oz package of Shredded Coleslaw
2 package of Chicken Flavored Ramen Noodles (crush your noodles and lay to side the two packets of seasoning)
1 bunch of green onions, chopped
1 cup of slivered almonds
2 cups of sunflower seeds kernels, roasted and salted
3/4 cup of canola oil or corn oil
1/3 cup of white vinegar
1/2 cup of sugar
Mix sugar, vinegar, oil, and 2 seasoning packets together. In separate bowl combine coleslaw, crushed noodles, green onions, almonds, and sunflower seeds. Add oil mixture to coleslaw mixture and let chill for several hours or overnight.
I sometimes add more almonds and sunflower seeds and sometimes I crush a third pkg. of ramen noodles to put on top of salad after I mix all ingredients together. I try to stir about every hour to 2 hours to keep the oil, vinegar, and sugar combined and soaking into the slaw and noodles.
