Katrina's Nutty Cole Slaw

Serves: 12-24 depending on if it's the primary side dish or one of many at a potluck
Prep: 20 minutes

1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup sunflower kernels
1 Tbsp. butter
6 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
1/2 cup salad oil (I use vegetable)
8-cup package shredded cole slaw
1/2 cup sliced green onions (or sub. a little onion powder)
2 3-oz. packages of ramen noodles, broken

Saute almonds an sunflower kernels in butter in skillet for 2-3 minutes. Drain. Combine rice vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and oil in a bowl. Mix well. Toss almond mixture, cole slaw mix, green onions, and ramen noodles in salad bowl. Add the ramen when you are about to serve it to reduce the chance of soggy noodles.

Note: this recipe could easily be halved.

*This is my favorite side dish to make for summer BBQ's, with pulled pork sandwiches, to serve alongside burgers, or to bring to a pot luck. It's ALWAYS a hit!!!
