Broccoli-Ramen Salad


I'm always writing down a recipe here and a recipe there, sometimes printing a recipe I find interesting. When things get busy, I stack the recipes to file or try later. I was going through a pile of recipes, putting them in the proper place to file them and came across a recipe that I don't know where I got it, but it sure sounded good and I had almost everything on hand!

Broccoli-Ramen Salad

1/2 bag broccoli slaw
1/4 cup canola or olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 package Ramen noodles (uncooked)

The original recipe also called for almond slivers, sunflower seeds, and green onions (I didn't have any of those on-hand).

Mix the brown sugar, oil, vinegar, and packet from the Ramen noodles.

Crush the noodles and toast them in a bit of oil. (I personally think this step is unnecessary, and will skip it next time.)

Combine the dressing, noodles, and broccoli slaw and toss well.

It gets better the longer it stands in the fridge. And, oh my, was it delicious and even more delicious on the second day! I can hardly wait to go to the store to get some more.

we love broccoli slaw! my recipe calls for toasting the ramen noodles a little bit with slivered almonds. To the whole batch, I also toss in sunflower seeds and craisins. Love it!

I think the original recipe I read said that about toasting the noodles and almonds.....I'm a short-cut girl and just cut those steps out, lol. I'll have to get some sunflower seeds--that sounds great!
