Asian Slaw - YUMMY!! YUMMY!! YUMMY!!

Sorry I don't have a photo..... but can truly say that this is DELISH !!! Truly a big hit at parties.....

A neighbor made this last year for a neighborhood gathering...... It was the first time I ever remember guys standing around a table telling everyone "You have to taste this salad" !!! It's easy and it is soooooo good. I usually make it up a 1 1/2 days ahead of time..... it just gets better and better.......

Asian Slaw -

1 (16oz) package of slaw mix
2 (3 oz) packages beef flavored ramen noodle soup mix (I like more noodles so I add an extra package of noodles - but don't use the 3rd flavoring packet)
1 Cup Sliced almonds, toasted
1 Cup Sunflower kernels1 bunch
Green onions, chopped
1/2 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Vegetable oil
1/3 Cup Vinegar

Remove flavor pockets from soup mix and set aside;
Crush noodles.
Place noodles in bottom of a large bowl.
Top with slaw mix; sprinkle with almonds, sunflower kernels, green onions.
Whisk together contents of flavor packets, sugar, oil & vinegar…..
Pour over slaw mix.
Cover and chill 24 hours.
Toss before serving……

Yields 8 - 10 servings…… Actually goes a lot farther at a gathering when you're serving other items....

Ooh! That DOES sound good! What else do you serve it with?

I'm so glad you posted something, I was about to dig out a recipe that I WANT to try and post it just to keep us busy. May still do that some time this week!

I have made this over and over. It is the perfect complement to pork dishes and goes well with sweet potatoes. I always mean to make it and let it set at least overnight, but if my husband spots it, it is fair game.
