Oriental Ramen Broccoli Cole Slaw

2 (3 ounce) packages beef-flavor ramen noodles

2 (8 1/2 ounce-ish) packages broccoli coleslaw mix 
(I used one broccoli slaw mix and one cole slaw mix)

1 cup toasted slivered almonds

1 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 bunch green onion, chopped (about 4 scallions) I use a full bunch, cuz I like 'em!

1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar (rice wine vinegar tastes pretty yummy too!)
2 TBS. soy sauce
Both Season packets from the Ramen noodles

1. Before opening noodles, crush into pieces. Open packages and set aside flavor packets.

(Before step 2 - I toasted the ramen noodles and almond slivers (or slices) in the oven on 325 degrees, on a baking stone, for about 30 minutes)

2. Place ramen, slaw, almonds, sunflower seeds and green onions all in large serving bowl. 

3 In a separate bowl combine oil, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce and seasoning packets from noodles. Shake/stir/mix very well. Pour over slaw, mix well, then cover and chill a few hours.

4. Toss before serving. Dressing will settle on bottom of bowl.

Disclaimer: This is NOT my own personal recipe, However, I did make some changes of my own. I found it on a site that did not have a Pinterest link so I placed it here to remember and easily link. Thank you. 


  1. When I make mine, I use the Oriental flavor Ramen (I like the spices better), I add toasted sesame seeds (a big container from the Oriental food aisle is a fraction of the price of a little can in the spice aisle), and if I can find it on sale or I'm making it for a potluck or something, I'll use rice vinegar. It's a bit sweeter, so I cut down a little on the sugar.
    I've also had it served with those crunchy noodles that come in a can served on the side (kinda like croutons). No matter how it's made...I love the stuff!

  2. CORRECTION: I toast the almonds and noodles for 30 minutes!! Or you can buy already toasted almonds and just toast the noodles. Trust me, toasting them gives a better taste than raw or blanched! :)
