Ramen Broccoli Slaw

I had enjoyed eating this before (love those potlucks!) but hadn't ever made it myself, until I saw this easy recipe featured at Mix it up Monday at Lisa's Flour Me with Love blog.

The recipe was posted by Marissa at Rae Gun Ramblings. And it's so simple to make! She has an awesome tutorial there is you want to check it out. Please be sure to let her know I sent you over. 

Have you ever purchased a bag of broccoli slaw?  Makes all that shredding so easy - I think it would be great steamed too.

It's best to let this salad stand atleast a few hours before serving, and overnight is even better....the noodles get softer that way.

Always good to have a 'make ahead' dish when you're preparing a big meal huh?


RAMEN BROCCOLI SLAW

1/4 C. Vegetable Oil
1/8 C. White Vinegar
1 Tsp. Sugar
(Splenda worked fine)
1/8 tsp. Pepper
1 pkg. Ramen seasoning


Ramen Noodles (uncooked and crushed)
16 oz. Bag Shredded Broccoli Slaw
1/2 C. (slivered) Almonds
(I toasted mine in a skillet on the stove)
4 green onions, sliced

Mix the first 5 ingredients together to make the dressing.

Add the rest of the ingredients and toss.
(It may seem like there won't be enough dressing, but there will be)

Serve it immediately or up 2-3 days later.
