Recipe for Asian Cole Slaw

It's picnic and potluck season! Here's a new twist on an old fave!

2 packs of chicken (or beef) flavored Ramen Noodles (uncooked)
(Break these apart while still in the packaging.)
2 (10 oz.) packages of Cole Slaw
(Broccoli Slaw is especially delicious!)
½ cup green onions, chopped
1 cup sunflower seeds

Toss all ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

For the dressing:
¾ cup salad oil
2 Tbsp sugar
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
2 seasoning packets (from Ramen Noodles)

Heat all together in a saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Let cool, then pour over Cole Slaw mixture and mix well. Let sit in the refrigerator for a couple hours before serving.

This salad is a great one to make ahead, and it keeps well for a week or longer in the refrigerator. And, if I'm not cooking for a crowd, I divide the recipe in half.
