This was fantastic! I did cut down on the dressing ingredients: used 1/8 cup oil (I prefer sunflower oil) 3 Tbl. vinegar (I prefer rice vinegar) and 3 Tbl. sugar. I think the dressing in this recipe is missing a key ingredient - the Ramen seasoning packet - be sure and add it to the oil vinegar and sugar mixture. Note that it really makes a difference to toast the almonds and sunflower seeds before adding them. I like to let the salad sit for a few hours in the refrigerator so that the cabbage wilts a little the noodles hydrate and the flavors meld then I add the almonds and sunflower seeds just before serving. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I would use less oil next time. I also used the seasoning packet included with the noodles to flavor the dressing. To make this recipe even quicker I will use a packaged cole slaw mix next time. Read More

Real yummy recipe - everybody loves it but I do have some variations. Make it easy for yourself & buy the bag of coleslaw already pre-chopped. It has carrots too which adds some color. I do not use butter to toast nuts as you don't need it - they have their own natural oils. But they cook fast so don't walk away. I used 1/3C oil 4T vinegar & 3T sugar along w/ 2 seasoning packets from the Ramen noodles. This is a great side dish for a summer BBQ. Read More

I loved this salad only I made it with the Broccoli Slaw that you can buy pre-shredded it kept crisper than I think the shredded cabbage would and tasted even better the next day I also added the Ramen Noodle seasoning packet with the vinegar/oil mix and used sesame oil because it adds great flavor to any salad.

This is a good one-I use coleslaw mix chicken flavored ramen noodles and sesame seeds instead of sunflower seeds. I toast the sesame seeds broken noodles and nuts and then add them in right before serving. I also blend the seasoning packet from the ramen noodles into the dressing mixture for extra flavor. There's never a bite left-the bowl is always licked clean! Read More

used prepacked slaw mix. also put the seasoning packets in the dressing. I didn't use all the oil called for either.. i just add oil as I whisked the other ingredients stopping to taste.. I can't say how much I did use in the end. NOTE: the green onions are the KEY in this recipe if you ask me.. I made it the first time w/out any as i didn't have any and needed to use the pkg'd slaw up fast.. it was ok but missing that certain zing. Next time i made sure i had green onions and that made all the difference!!! ps- oriental flavored spice packets made the best tasting dressing... Read More
