Asian Cole Slaw


Last night we had a YW Leaders Asian Dinner/"Planning" meeting. LOL, it's so fun to have such good friends to serve with; it really makes for enjoyable times. There was amazing Japanese food for the main course, yummy yummy homemade egg rolls, shamelessly decadent caramel brownies, and this asian salad that I made. I found several recipes on the internet and combined them into what I thought might be best and I don't mind bragging that it was excellent. What a relief, since I really didn't know what I was doing!

Asian Cole Slaw
Ingredients
1 16 oz bag cole slaw
15 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
Approx 1/4 cup butter
4 oz slivered almonds
1 package crushed ramen noodles
1/2 cup diced green onions
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tbs soy sauce

Directions
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cole slaw with diced onions, put in fridge to keep cool. Melt butter and mix in crushed ramen noodles and nuts. Spread on cookie sheet, bake on 350 until browned, turning often to avoid burning. Set aside to cool at least 15 minutes.

In a blender (three cheers for the Magic Bullet!) mix sugar, oil, vinegar, and soy sauce. Refrigerate until ready to mix and serve.

When browned and cooled, add nuts/ramen mixture to cole slaw and stir well. Add drained mandarin oranges, then pour dressing over entire mixture. Stir well and serve immediately.
