I think Ramen noodles get a lot of judgment. Don't you? Maybe its over processed dorm food. Maybe. But it has some redeeming qualities too. Its quick, cheap, and great in this recipe. Here's a twist on coleslaw that will be a hit at your next gathering. Its got lots of crunch and lots of flavor. You don't even have to get out a pot for this one.
1 bag shredded cabbage
1 package oriental flavored Ramen noodles
3 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
3 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
1 cup slivered almonds or chopped whole almonds, toasted
4 green onions, chopped
With the Ramen noodle package still closed, break up noodles until no large pieces remain. In a large bowl, combine shredded cabbage and broken Ramen noodles. Set the flavoring packet aside.
In a smaller bowl, combine vinegar, sugar, oil, and flavoring packet. Whisk until combined. Pour dressing over cabbage mixture. Add in sesame seeds, almonds and green onions. Toss to combine. Refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.
