We can't end 2014 without a post in December! Yes, I'm sitting at home alone on New Year's Eve, but this is by choice. I swear! I am writing one of the last food blogs of the year! But, have no fear there's plenty more to come!
I found this yummy recipe on Table for Two's blog! She called it "Ridiculously Amazing Asian Ramen Salad." Now, I do think it was a good recipe, but "ridiculously amazing?" Eh. I don't think so. Honestly, it was a little weird using raw ramen noodles, but I did add the dressing in the morning and by lunch time the ramen noodles had softened. Everyone at my potluck did enjoy the recipe, so I'd definitely make it again! It's really simple to throw together, and I wonder what it would taste like if you eat it right away. Probably crunchy! Anyway, give it a whirl and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
1 (16 oz) bag of Cole Slaw Mix
1 cup Sunflower Seeds (seeds only and not the shells)
2 (3 oz) bags of Ramen, crushed (throw out the seasoning)
5 stalks of Scallions, sliced
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
In order to crush the Ramen noodles; place in a large ziplock bag and crush with a rolling pin by rolling over the noodles. Now, take out a large bowl and add the cole slaw, sunflower seeds, crushed ramen, and scallions. Take out a medium bowl, and combine the vegetable oil through the sugar. Whisk well. No worries if the sugar doesn't completely dissolve. Pour the oil mixture over the noodle mixture and stir well making sure all the noodles are coated well with the dressing. Now, you can either serve it immediately or place it in the fridge and let chill for a couple hours. Serve cold or at room temperature! Enjoy!
