Broccoli Slaw

The original recipe is from my sister, Lorraine. Although I love this recipe, it is not healthy due to the ramen noodles! I have tweaked the recipe a bit, which is what is recorded below. I want to experiment with the recipe to see if I can remove the ramen noodles and still have a good result.

Ingredients

  • 1

    pkg Broccoli Slaw (12 oz)

  • 1/2

    bunch green onions (original recipe calls for full bunch...I prefer less)

  • 1/2

    cup avocado oil

  • 1/2

    cup sugar (I think this could be reduced to 1/3 & still be plenty sweet! try that next time)

  • 1/3

    cup vinegar

  • 2

    pkg ramen noodles

  • 1

    cup sunflower seeds

  • My additions:

  • chopped celery, including the innermost part & leaves

  • extra red cabbage

  • extra coleslaw mix (just green cabbage & carrots)

Directions

In small bowl, mix oil, sugar, vinegar & chicken flavoring from ramen noodles. Crush ramen noodles into small pieces (no big clumps). In large bowl, mix broccoli slaw, green onions & broken dry noodles. Mix greens and dressing (this is best done a day ahead so the noodles can soak up some of the dressing and soften). Before serving, stir in sunflower seeds. My Notes: This recipe makes a TON of dressing, way more than needed. I quadrupled this recipe for Alyssa's graduation party. I added 1, 10 oz bag of red cabbage and 1, 16 oz bag of cole slaw mix to this and it turned out great! I used my biggest stainless steel metal bowl to mix this up in. There was plenty of dressing and flavor for the additional veggies. As noted above, I used half the amount of green onions called for in the original recipe and it was still plenty. Quadrupled and with these additional veggies, I had a HUGE amount of salad...filling 2 of my largest (11 cup) storage containers and a little more...and those containers were packed full. For a single batch, you could easily double the amount of broccoli slaw or just buy a bag of shredded red cabbage and add it in. Ideas to make it healthy: Got to get rid of the ramen noodles, or at a minimum, the seasoning packets because among other yucky ingredients, it contains MSG! I was thinking of trying some uncooked broken spaghetti or some other very small type of pasta and subbing it for the ramen noodles. Then I was going to check the ingredients in the flavoring packets and add those spices into the dressing along with some healthy organic chicken bouillon paste that I have. Hope I can figure something out, because this is so good! I could eat this stuff ever day! Great served over a bed of spinach, too!
