"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
1 pkg. – ramen oriental flavored noodles 1/3 c. – sesame OR olive oil (+ oil for sautéing almonds, etc.) 1 bag – coleslaw mix 3 T. – rice vinegar 1 pkg. – almond slivers 3 T. – sesame seeds 3 T. – sugar sliced green onion (optional)
Sauté almond slivers in sesame or olive oil – add sesame seeds (if not pre-toasted). Be careful not to burn. Set aside. Mix 1/3 cup sesame or olive oil with the rice vinegar & 3 T. sugar. Add seasoning packet from the Ramen noodle mix. Stir until all dissolved. Add the almonds and sesame seeds and mix thoroughly. Pour coleslaw mix into large mixing bowl and add liquid and mix. Break up the Ramen noodles into small piece and add to mixture.
Some people like to add the Ramen noodles very close to serving time (like taco salad), but I like adding them when I make the salad so that they are softer – more like regular noodles instead of so crunchy. My sister recommends not making too far ahead of time or it could get “soupy”.
