Broccoli Slaw

My sister gave me this recipe, it's one of the best recipes I've run across in years.  I make it fairly often, I love having it sitting in the fridge.  It's one of those things that you pull out and stand in the kitchen munching away on.

This recipe makes a surprisingly large amount.  I wouldn't recommend doubling it even for a party unless you want a LOT. 


1 pack Broccoli Slaw (I'd never heard of this before getting this recipe, but it must be fairly common, it's easy to find.  Evidently it is some kind of shredded broccoli)
2 packs Beef Ramen Noodles
1 cup roasted slivered almonds (spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet and roast at 350 degrees for three or four minutes until barely colored, stirring once or twice, make sure you get them good and crisp but not browned) (Note: in my oven it takes about 14 minutes).
1 cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds (these are a little harder to find sometimes.  Salted really do not work very well.)
5 to 10 green onions, chopped
3/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup sugar

Crush the ramen noodles into small pieces while in the package.  Combine slaw, noodles, nuts, sunflower seeds, & green onions in medium to large bowl.

For dressing, mix oil, vinegar, sugar & the flavor packets from the Ramen noodles. Wisk until dressing thickens, and pour over salad.
