1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup olive oil, divided
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup sunflower kernels
2 packages (14 ounces each) coleslaw mix
12 green onions, chopped (about 1-1/2 cups)
1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 packages (3 ounces each) chicken ramen noodles
1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add almonds and sunflower kernels; cook until toasted, about 4 minutes. Cool.
2. In a large bowl, combine coleslaw mix, onions and red pepper. In a small bowl, whisk vinegar, sugar, pepper, contents of ramen seasoning packets and remaining oil. Pour over salad; toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving. Break noodles into small pieces. Just before serving, stir in noodles, almonds and sunflower kernels.
For potlucks and picnics, this ramen cabbage salad is a knockout. I tote the veggies in a bowl, dressing in a jar and noodles in a bag. Then I shake them up together when it's time to eat.
