Asian Broccoli Slaw ~ Healthalicious! May 3, 2010

Filed under: Calling all bloggers!,Crazy Good Food,To your health! — Janine Chance @ 6:29 am

I make this slaw for almost any summer gathering. It’s a great alternative to a mayo-based coleslaw…much lighter and just plain yummy. You won’t disappoint!

Asian Broccoli Slaw
2 (12 oz) bags of broccoli slaw (I like the one with carrots and purple cabbage..mmm!)

1 bunch of green onions (about 4) sliced on the bias using all white and ½ of the green

2 packages of Oriental Flavored Ramen noodles (seasoning inc.)

1/3 cup rice or rice wine vinegar

2 – 3 T. sugar (more or less to taste)

1 T. sesame oil

1 T. vegetable oil (optional)

4 oz. package of almond slivers or slices

4 oz. package of sunflower seeds (shelled)

In a large bowl, combine the broccoli slaw and green onions, set aside.

Toast the almonds and sunflower seeds in a pan (keep watch on these suckers…they burn quick!)

For the dressing, combine both packs of oriental seasoning from the Ramen Noodles, vinegar, sugar, and oil. Taste it and make sure the combination suits you. Adjust accordingly. (Some like more vinegar, pepper, a little salt…you know…make it your own.)

Place Ramen Noodles in a large Ziploc and crush with a rolling pin. Not too small, but enough to where there are no large chunks.

(If you are taking this to a picnic, or won’t be eating it right away, seal everything up, and assemble about ½ hr. before.)

Place Ramen Noodles, sunflower seeds and almonds on top of the broccoli slaw and green onions. Pour dressing over the top and combine well. Again, taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.
