This is one of my favorite summer salads. It's so easy and everyone loves it. I'll double it for a large group. The original recipe called for 1/2 C oil and 1/4 C vinegar; I changed the portions. See what works for you. HTH

Broccoli Slaw

Rinse and drain one package of broccoli slaw.
Crush noodles from one package ramen noodles, save flavor packet. Set aside.
Melt 1 T butter in frying pan on medium heat. Stir in 1/3 C sunflower seeds and 1/3 C slivered almonds. Cook until until golden brown, stirring frequently. Set aside.

Dressing (whisk together until well blended):
1/3 C olive oil
1/3 C apple cider or balsamic vinegar (the recipe I have calls for apple cider but I like balsamic)
Flavor packet from ramen noodles
1/4 C sugar

Mix together broccoli slaw, crushed noodles, sunflower seeds, almonds and dressing. Chill before serving. It usually tastes best if you allow at least 24 hours to chill.

Just wondering if a particular flavor of ramen noodles (chicken? oriental?) works best. I'll have to try this!

We love this salad! I either use oriental or chicken flavor depending if there are any vegetarians present. I also substitute 2-3 T sesame oil for some of the olive and add black pepper.

It seems to come out tasty any way you make it, though!

I'd never heard of this salad before reading this thread, but I had Paula Deen on this morning and she made it. Here's the recipe she used (from the Food Network site):

Meanwhile, whisk together all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Place the shredded broccoli into bowl and toss with the noodles, almonds, and sunflower seeds. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat. Garnish with chopped green onions.
