It's getting warmer outside, so I'm thinking of summer salads! This high-protein salad is delicious and simple to make.
1 pkg. (16 oz.) cole slaw mix, broccoli mix or combination
l c. salted sunflower kernels
5 green onions, sliced
l pkg. ramen noodles--save seasoning for another use
¾ c. slivered almonds
In a dry fry pan, crush ramen noodles and brown until golden. Cool. Set aside.
Brown almonds the same way. Cool. Set aside.
Combine slaw, nuts, onions, noodles and almonds in a large salad bowl. Add dressing and mix together just before serving.
3/4 c. oil
3/4 c. sugar
6 T. white vinegar
¾ tsp. soy sauce
Whisk oil into sugar, vinegar and soy sauce.
