Kim's notes for this recipe:
This is a wonderful crunchy coleslaw salad with 2 kinds of cabbage with sunflower seeds and almonds too. It is a really healthy salad and super easy to make. It can be made several hours in advance if need be. I love the crunchy, munchy, chewiness of this salad. This is my own rendition of a very simple recipe I started out with years ago and I have just kept adding goodies to it.

Hope you enjoy the crunch.
Will take a pic next time I make it.

Personalize This


Chop up your 2 different cabbages
Mix the ingredients of your salad dressing and pour into a glass jar w/lid and shake till it is combined or use a wire whisk to combine.
Add all your ingredients for your salad except for sesame seeds and toss together in a bowl.
Pour some of your dressing over salad and toss and then decide if you need more or not. Just before serving add your sesame seeds to the top for garnish.
If I am taking this salad to serve at a picnic I wait about an hour before serving to add the ramen noodles and sesame seeds on top. Here is the finished salad we served today for the 4th of July at my parents camp in Cooks Forest. It is such a colorful and crunchy salad.

Thanks for reminding me of this great salad, that made way back when. I first learned of it 20 years or so ago. An attorney's wife made it and called it Sue Me Salad. I'm not sure of what the real spelling was, but I'm sure that is not it. Is the sriracha hot chili one of your additions?

Yep it sure is...sometimes we like a little kick to our salads. This one has been around quite awhile and I have seen variations of it from time to time. I like that name...heehee it's funny.
