I LOVE THIS SALAD! I can't tell you how many times I have made this for our family and for get-togethers. Paula Deen made this recipe, but I altered it using green onions in the salad. This is the perfect salad to bring to an outdoor party, I LOVE it! Did I already mention that? I'm sure all of you have heard of the cabbage salad you make with the ramen noodles, and chicken. This is different because you use pre-packages broccoli slaw, it looks like this.
It is shredded broccoli stalks, and they taste delicious. There are all sorts of brands, just check in the prepackaged salad section in your grocery store. This recipe also uses the oriental flavor ramen, so there is the flavor of soy, seseme and ginger. You HAVE to make this the next time you have a get-together or on a hot summer night. I add chicken to it when I want to make the recipe main dish rather than a side dish. Everything in the salad can be done in advanced, and sit until you are ready to serve.
2 bags broccoli coleslaw
1/4 c. slivered almonds
2 bags oriental flavor ramen noodles, crushed
1 bunch green onion, sliced thinly
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1/4 c. sugar
2 pkgs oriental ramen flavoring (in the ramen bag)
1/2 c. canola oil
1/4 c. cider vinegar

In a large sauce pan, melt butter and add crushed ramen noodles along with slivered almonds. On medium heat, saute noodles and almonds until golden brown. Remove from pan and cool. Prepare dressing by combining all ingredients. In a large bowl combine broccoli slaw, green onions, noodles and almonds. Toss with dressing just before serving. This recipes makes a large quantity.
