Almost every time we have a potluck at school, someone brings this salad and it is done in no time. I kept meaning to ask around at school how to make it but never thought about that when I was actually AT school. :) So one day I was in the mood for it, I pulled out my handy dandy family cookbook, opened it up, and...ta-da...there it was. Actually, not once but twice. I ended up using my grandmother's recipe which was just like one of my co-worker's recipe with one minor change via the co-worker...
1 bag of coleslaw (my recipe says tri-color, I just used the most colorful coleslaw mix I could find...
2 packages of Ramen noodles, Oriental or beef (my co-worker uses beef)
1 package of sunflower seeds...already shelled of course :)
1 package of slivered almonds
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
Crush the Ramen noodles. I put them in a plastic bag and used a meat tenderizer. Do NOT use the seasoning packets yet.
Mix the slaw, Ramen noodles, almonds, and sunflower seeds in a large bowl.
Mix the oil, vinegar, sugar, and Ramen flavor packets in a large measuring cup or a bowl. Refrigerate overnight.
Pour the dressing over the slaw mixture just before serving.
Forgive the picture above. I didn't take the picture right away. No matter how it looks, I will say, it was good stuff!
