The first time I saw this was at an office potluck, and I thought ewwww. But let me tell you after I tried it, it quickly became one of my favorites. It's delicious and EASY!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This coleslaw used to be very popular and we think it should be on picnic tables again. The Ramen seasoning mixed with the dressing is what makes this slaw so good. It's savory, sweet, and tangy all at one time. As this coleslaw sits in the fridge, the noodles soak up the dressing and become soft. Great mayonnaise-free side dish for any cookout, potluck, or picnic.
