  1. In a large bowl, toss together the coleslaw mix, green onions and broccoli. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Crumble the ramen noodles into a bowl, and mix with the almonds and sunflower seeds. Sprinkle the seasoning packets over all. Add to the skillet; cook and stir until noodles and nuts are toasted, about 8 minutes.
  3. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the sugar, vinegar, oil and soy sauce. Seal, and shake vigorously to blend.
  4. Just before serving, combine the slaw mixture with the nuts and noodles. Pour the dressing over all, and stir briefly to coat.

I made a few changes that made this wonderful. First when making the dressing, I used only 1/3 cup sugar. It is plenty. If you want to use Splenda to make it sugar free that would work as well. I will probably try that next time. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Instead of the Chicken Ramen Noodles, I used Oriental. This flavor seems to compliment this recipe more so. One last change I made to the dressing was adding the packet of orienal seasoning mix to the actual dressing and not the nut mix. This makes it much more flavorful. When I sauteed the nut mix I only used 1/4 cup butter. Just trying to cut back on the fat and it works! My kids love this!



I just made this and it is wonderful. I would give it a ten if I could! I do have some tips that I hope will help-break the noodles up into small pieces so they toast evenly, make sure the sugar is well blended into the dressing ingredients, add the dressing a little at a time to the salad mixing well after each addition and make this in a very large bowl. I did toast the nuts separately and advise that you wait until the nuts and noodles are cool before adding them to the slaw.



Loved it, but I made some changes that we delightful. Too lazy to prep broccoli, so I used broccoli slaw. Cut sugar to 1/3 cup on advice of other reviewers. Substituted cashews and pistachios because I didn't have almonds and sunflower seeds. Added about 1 c. of sliced grapes (someone else did this, and it sounded good...could have cut sugar even more). Took it to a church meal and got rave reviews, and I'm ready to make up a batch for another event this weekend. Love it, and so easy...
