Great recipe for family, friends and church functions. There are many versions to this recipe this is mine. It is a Family Reunion Favorite, the crunch from the noodles, and the crisp broccoli, and the sweet & sour flavors from the dressing, we just love it. I always double the recipe when I make it for a large gathering.

SALAD INGREDIENTS

1 lb
broccoli slaw,
1/2 lb
broccoli floweretts
1 bunch
green onions, chopped small
2 pkg

1 large

1/3 c
white vinegat
1/2 c

2
seasoning packets from noodles

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Crunch noodles into small pieces. Then in a large bowl combine noodles with remaining salad ingredients, and stir to mix.
2
For the dressing combine all of the ingredients including both seasoning packets from the noodles. Pour into a cruet or jar with a tight fitting lid, and SHAKE VIGOROUSLY until sugar has dissolved. Leave in refrigerator till ready to serve, then shake again just before serving.
3
Just before serving pour dressing over salad and toss well and serve. Garnish with extra strips of bell pepper if desired.
4
Note: There is never enough broccoli floweretts in the bsg of broccoli slaw, hence the addition of the half pound, I also like fresh snow peas, so I usually wash trim & cut them into thirds to get them evenly distributed through out the salad. It is really good.
