Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The crunchiness of the noodles and nuts really adds something special to the light, fresh taste of this slaw. This would be a great choice to take along on your next picnic... since it uses no mayonnaise!

Ingredients

1 c
sunflower seeds (plain)
2/3-1 c
slivered almonds (plain)
2 pkg
chicken ramen noodles w/ seasoning pks
1 pkg
coleslaw (any type)
1/2 c
vegetable oil
1/4 c
sugar
3 Tbsp
white vinegar

Directions

1
In a container with a tight lid, combine the oil, sugar, and vinegar with the contents of the seasoning pack(s).
2
Place slaw in large bowl. Crush the ramen noodles add the almonds and sunflower seeds. Cover the container and shake well to blend the dressing
3
Pour the dressing over the salad, add the sunflower seeds and almonds, and toss to combine.
4
Let set in fridge for about 30 minutes before serving (just as good the next day too).

    Love this salad! I've been making this for years exactly as written, with one exception. I use the oriential noodle mix instead of chicken. Tastes more Asian, and I've used red cabbabe mix too!!

    I am so glad to see this recipe. My Mom used to make this & I loved it but did not have the recipe. The only bad thing about this is the noodles get soggy so it does not hold well for leftovers - but there usually aren't many anyway.
