Friday Food: Asian Slaw

Looking for a simple recipe for a picnic or potluck? This one is perfect and a real crowd pleaser. You throw everything together the day before, stick it in the fridge, and toss it just before serving. Do make sure you give it the 24 hours to sit so the noodles will soften on their own. But really, how much easier can it get? (My apologies that the photograph is refrigerated and pre-toss. I took this to a picnic on the 4th of July and so didn't have the opportunity to photograph it just before serving and there wasn't any to bring home!)

Asian Slaw

2 packages beef ramen noodles
1 bag (16 oz) coleslaw mix
1 cup sliced toasted almonds
1 cup sunflower kernels
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup red wine or rice wine vinegar

Crush ramen noodles and place in a large bowl. Top with coleslaw mix. Sprinkle with almonds and sunflower kernels on top.
In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, vinegar, and contents of flavor packets from the noodles. Pour over slaw. Do not stir.
Cover and chill for 24 hours. Toss just before serving.
