I Love Food

I think I've made it pretty clear that I love food. Food is good. Yep.

Last night I made one of my favoritest things ever.....Asian Ramen Coleslaw. HEEEAAAVEN. Me and my b-fri are equally addicted and I took the opportunity to rub it in her face today that I had some for breakfast.....and dinner last night, and lunch today.

It's super easy to make and everyone who tries it will want it all to themselves. Down here in the south, the only things that go quicker at the family reunion are potato salad and green bean casserole...oh and those little wiener dogs soaked in bar-b-que sauce. Mmmm, Mmmmm....how I love me a good family reunion!

It's best to make this stuff and let it sit for several hours before you eat it, so keep that in mind. It tends to taste a little.....strong until all the vinegar settles its little vinegar self down.

So, here's what you'll need:

SALAD:
3 green onions, chopped
1 (6 oz.) bag coleslaw mix (I sometimes add half of another bag)
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 cup slivered or sliced almonds
1 (3 oz.) package chicken-flavored ramen noodles, reserve seasoning packet for dressing

DRESSING:
1/4 cup oil
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
chicken seasoning from ramen (reserved packet)


First, roast your almonds and sesame seeds. Just throw some butter in a pan and do it. I don't always have sesame seeds, but this shit's just as good without 'em.

While the ramens are still in the bag, crunch 'em all up. Like majorly crunch 'em up.

Mix together the slaw, the crushed ramens (don't forget to take out the seasoning packet genius), green onions, roasted almonds and sesame seeds.

Make the dressing by combining the all dressing ingredients. Pour that shit over the coleslaw mixture and voilĂ .

Make it. Eat it.

I've never tried that before. I always thought there was one way to make ramen. Hot water, seasoning packet, and bring on the sads. ;)

It is AMAZING! Just let it sit....it's crucial, especially the first time you eat it.
