How to make broccoli slaw with ramen noodles:
Start with a package of broccoli slaw mix. This is found by the coleslaw mix in your grocery store. It's a “healthier” version of coleslaw containing shredded broccoli, red cabbage and carrots.
Next, go ahead and break up the ramen noodles while in their package. Just use the heel of your hand and smash those suckers until they are broken up a good bit. You won't need the seasoning packet for the recipe.
Toss the slaw mix, ramen noodles, slivered almonds and sliced green onions in a large bowl. If you've got some sunflower seeds on hand those work well to replace the almonds if you're looking for a good substitute.
In a small bowl, whisk together the canola oil, white vinegar (don't use a cider vinegar), soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and sugar for the dressing.
Finally, pour the dressing over the slaw mixture and give it a good toss to combine the ingredients. You can either serve this immediately or cover it and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Finally, gobble it up!
Our family loves this one. 🙂
