Last week we had a potluck dinner at church. I never know what to bring for potluck. I am always afraid of duplicates – too much of one thing and not enough of something else. Salads are usually safe, so that was my plan. It was a busy week so I wanted to find something that was easy to make and not too perishable as I had to shop a couple days before.
I decided on a Broccoli Slaw salad which is a spin-off of a Asian Cole Slaw. The broccoli slaw has a nice crunch and holds up better with the dressing. This salad is very easy to prepare and the kids can put it together for you while you get ready. If you are not eating the salad right away, bring the dressing on the side to pour on right before serving.
(2) 10oz. packages of broccoli slaw
½ cup sliced almonds
7.25 oz. package sunflower kernels
(1) 3oz. package Ramen Chicken Soup Mix uncooked
Flavor package from Ramen Noodles
¼ cup of vegetable oil
1 ½ tablespoons of vinegar
1/8 cup of sugar
Pour broccoli slaw, almonds and sunflower kernels in large bowl.
Before opening the Ramen Noodle Soup Mix, break up uncooked noodles into small pieces. (In my haste, I opened the package first so I put the noodles into a Ziploc bag to smash them.)
Add noodles to bowl.
Toss the salad to mix evenly.
In separate bowl, pour in oil, vinegar, sugar and flavor package. Mix well.
Pour dressing over salad right before serving.
This salad was a hit at the potluck. Here is what the bowl looked like when I picked it up!
