Another Ramen Noodle Cole Slaw

Potluck at the office today so instead of the regular Asian Cole Slaw that I have posted here before I decided to make a similar but different salad. This salad is easy easy easy & also really good!!!

I find that these types of salads..coleslaws.. are very popular, best a day after they are made so that it is a good make-ahead salad & you can make this larger to easily crowd feed a crowd .. this recipe is for 2 bags of cole slaw mix which makes a big quantity of salad. You can cut the amount of dressing you make in half for only 1 bag of coleslaw mix or just have this salad in the fridge for a few days which is always good. You can add some cooked chicken to it & have a really great ‘meal’ salad

The recipe is from the cookbook Kosher by Design by Susie Fishbein called crunchy cole slaw page 77 if you have the book!

I made this pretty much as it is written except that I reduced the amount of sugar in the dressing & did not add the green onions…

Here is the recipe

1  pkg of Ramen noodle soup…discard the seasoning mix

oil

2 bags of pre-cut cole slaw mix

1/2 cup sesame seeds

1/2 cup slivered almonds

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

Dressing

1 cup light flavoured oil…I used grapeseed oil

2 tbsp soy sauce

1/2 cup sugar…this amt is reduced from the original recipe!

1/2 cup red wine vinegar

Method 

  1. Break up the ramen noodles into small bits
  2. In a skillet… warm some oil…you do not need too much… the recipe called for 1/2 cup but I think that is too much so start with maybe 1/4 cup….
  3. Add the broken up Ramen noodles & brown the noodles… stir them & watch them ..don’t walk away because they brown quickly once they start… when brown remove from the heat
  4. Use a really large bowl to mix the salad in because the cole slaw takes up a lot of room before it gets soft from the dressing…or…. sometimes if I am only making only 1 bag of cole slaw mix I actually put it all in a ziploc bag, seal it & mix it up in the bag..it mixes up really nicely, store it that way in the fridge…then I put it into a serving bowl when ready to eat!
  5. Anyway… put the coleslaw mix & the seeds & nuts into the bowl & toss
  6. Make the dressing…. it was too much dressing for the small jar I was using so I had to pour it out into a bowl & I used a whisk to combine the ingredients…
  7. Pour the salad dressing over the coleslaw & toss
  8. Add the browned ramen noodles & toss everything together…
  9. Serve right away if you like your coleslaw crunchy or make ahead if you like your coleslaw softer!

Enjoy!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
