Chinese Slaw Salad

I have always enjoyed the typical ramen noodle/coleslaw salad but this one takes on a twist with an asian flair. It is so yummy! Make sure you toast the sesame seeds first and then toast the almonds seperate. It dosen't work well together. Sometimes I buy the pre-toasted almonds to save time and they are delicious. Thanks to my sweet friend Sue for sharing this recipe with me!

Chinese Slaw Salad

1 pack cabbage coleslaw mix OR broccoli slaw mix ( I used the cabbage)
1 bunch of Green Onion
1/2 Cup of Sesame seeds
1 pack of slivered almonds ( 1/2 cup)
1 or 2 packages of Ramen noodles
Optional - 1 grilled chicken breast, cut up

Chop up the Green Onions and mix with the coleslaw. Put a small amount of butter in a pan and fry the sesame seeds. Set aside and then brown the 1/2 Cup of slivered almonds. Break up the ramon noodles and brown them. Let the the sesame seeds, slivered almonds and noodles cool off and toss in the salad. (Or just skip the toasting and toss them in the salad)

1/3 Cup Vinegar
1/4 Cup sugar
1/4 Cup oil
2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce.

Mix till sugar is dissolved When ready to serve, pour dressing over salad and mix all together.
