Oriental Coleslaw


Oriental Coleslaw

1 head green cabbage
½ head red cabbage
1 bunch scallions
6 carrots
½ Cup chopped almonds
1 Cup sunflower seeds
2 Packages of Ramen noodles (Oriental flavor - just the noodles, not the flavor packets - save those)


½ Cup vegetable oil or olive oil
¼ Cup vinegar (I prefer red wine vinegar but white or apple cider work as well.)
3 Tbsp. tamari
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 Packages of Oriental flavor packets

Finely shred the green and red cabbage and the carrots. Chop the scallions. Crush the Ramen into small pieces (best done by gently breaking it before opening the package!). Mix all prepared ingredients in a large bowl. Add the almonds and sunflower seeds. Mix well.

In a separate bowl combine all the ingredients for the dressing and mix very well allowing the sugar to dissolve. Pour dressing over coleslaw and mix well.

This prepares enough for a party (or 22 passengers on a boat!) so scale down the amounts for yourself or a more intimate gathering. It'ss also nice if you prepare this a little ahead of time and occasionally stir everything to let the dressing act as a marinade. A passenger (Colleen K. from Chicago) suggests adding grilled, sliced chicken to turn it into a main dish!

I hope you agree that this is a nice change from traditional coleslaw.
