During the warm summer months, I love salads. All salads – from garden salads to pasta salads, from potato salad to cole slaw. Yep, I pretty much love them all.
We are preparing for a family picnic tomorrow, and one of my all-time favorite salads to prepare is one made from broccoli slaw. I thought it would be fun to share the recipe with you. (I’m actually sharing the doubled version, which is what you’ll want to make for a large picnic or potluck – 1/2 this recipe would be more suitable for a family or small gathering.)
- 2 pkg. broccoli slaw
- 4 pkg. beef-flavored Ramen noodles
- 1/2 c. sunflower seeds
- 1 c. oil
- 1 c. vinegar
- 1 c. sugar
Place broccoli slaw in large bowl.
Crush Ramen noodles and add to broccoli slaw in bowl (set flavoring packets aside).
Add sunflower seeds.
Combine dressing ingredients – oil, vinegar, sugar, and 2 of the flavoring packets. Stir (or shake) ‘til well-mixed.
Pour dressing over other ingredients and stir until coated.
Refrigerate for several hours before serving (I like to make mine up the day before).
Just a warning – if you want some just for you, you better take some out and set it aside before going to your picnic. Otherwise, you’ll likely come home with an empty bowl!
