Oriental Broccoli Slaw

Pg 377 of Twilight. Oh my. I can't spell out the words of the sounds I make when reading this so I will just say OH MY. They just finished up the thunderstorm baseball game.


Well, onto more deliciousness. I made this as a side dish to the chicken florentine sandwiches on Sunday night. I got it from my sister who got it from a friend & so on. We had it as a leftover side for last night's dinner as well. The balance between sweet & tangy is very satisfying. This is a must try because it's easy on the effort & high on the taste.



Oriental Broccoli Slaw

1 bag broccoli slaw
2 pkgs Oriental Ramen noodles, crushed finely
1 seasoning packet from noodles
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup sugar

Mix broccoli slaw with noodles & sunflower seeds. Mix seasoning packet with oil, vinegar & sugar. Pour over slaw mixture & mix well. Refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours, preferably overnight. If you don't crush the noodles the bigger pieces will not become soft like you want them to.

Well I just found your blog this evening and of course the first line about the twilight book caught my eye! I have read all of them and promptly told my family I was going to go live with the vampires, lol. My yougest said, "MOM, you know they arent real, right?"LOL. A girl can dream.
Anyway I am so impressed with the hard work you have done here, I will be a permanent visitor and cooking up a storm!
Thanks so much for sharing.
Big fan in Texas!

That is one of my favorite salads! It is so quick to whip up for gatherings and it makes a lot. I think my recipe uses slivered almonds also, but otherwise it looks about the same. I like the noodles crisp, so keep them a little bigger and add them in just before serving.

I am wondering about this Twilight series that everyone is talking about. You were right about "Serendipity," so do you think I would like those books also?

Thank you for all your sweet comments on my SITS day, both at SITS and on my blog. You are such an encourager, and I appreciate you!

Oh the things you can do with ramen noodles. I have a cold noodle salad I make that's similar. I add diced chicken and peanut sauce.
