Tasty Tuesday - California Cole Slaw

This is my mom's go-to cole slaw recipe since she is not a fan of mayonaisse. The dressing is light and sweet, and the sunflower seeds and almonds provide for extra crunch. You should definitely make this for your next cookout!

California Cole Slaw

1pkg chicken flavor Ramen noodles
2 pkgs slivered almonds
1 pkg sunflower seed kernels
1pkg shredded cole slaw mix
4-6 chopped green onion (I leave this out sometimes)

1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup oil
Flavor packet from Ramen noodles

Combine chicken flavor packet, vinegar, sugar and oil in a jar and shake well.

In large bowl, layer IN ORDER, crushed Ramen noodles, shredded cole slaw, almonds, sunflower kernels, and onion. Pour dressing all over cole slaw. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours to allow plenty of time to soak the noodles (overnight).
