Asian slaw

One of the things on my 2012 "to do" list is to make a recipe from one of the church cook books every month.  For January (yes, I know I'm late posting) I made some Asian slaw.  This is something quick, easy, makes a good amount and goes with lots of other items usually found at a pot luck.  It's also nice for a picnic or a change of pace for your meal's veggie side.

1 (12 oz) bag shredded broccoli slaw
1 package chicken flavor Ramen noodles
1/4 c toasted slivered almonds
1/2 c  veg oil
1/4 c sugar
1/4 red vinegar
sesame or sunflowers seeds
(sweet onion or green onion if you like - diced)

Mix the slaw, onion, crushed noodles and almonds (I didn't have slivered, so I improvised) in a bowl, set aside.  In a smaller bowl mix the vinegar, sugar, oil and flavor packet from the noodle mix.  Stir into the veggie bowl coating well.  Add the seed as the end, mixing briefly.  

This should be served pretty promptly.  If you are traveling a bit to your destination, keep the dressing separate until you get there, then mix everything together.

Oooo, now that sounds so good. I think it would go with the Thai Soup recipe I just made. Thanks MarieElizabeth, this is going to be going in the same folder as my soup for the next time I make it. Have a great week!
