Killer Coleslaw

This coleslaw is so crunchy and good!  Perfect for a summer picnic!  This recipe is taken from The Best of Bridge “The Best of the Best and More”.  I use Ichiban original noodles.

Salad Ingredients
1/2 cabbage, chopped
5 green onions
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, toasted (or sesame seeds)
3 oz. pkg Japanese noodle soup mix, (save seasoning package for dressing)

1/4 cup rice (or white) vinegar
1/4 cup salad oil
Seasoning package from noodles

1. Combine all salad ingredients except noodles.  Before serving, crush noodles, combine with salad ingredients and toss with dressing.  Serves 6. If there’s any left over -save it!  Kids love it the next day!
