Crunchy Coleslaw for #SundaySupper

Happy Memorial Day Weekend.  The largest picnic and barbecue weekend of the year.  Everyone is excited to have a long weekend and to welcome the summer season.  One of the best ways to celebrate a gathering of friends is with a Potluck.  Everyone brings their best dish to share which means there is tons of great food.  Normally the host throws some burgers, hot dogs or sausages on the grill and the guests bring appetizers, side dishes and desserts.  I am getting hungry just writing about it!!


The dish I'm sharing with you today is a colorful, crunchy and delicious coleslaw that is sure to be a hit at your next Potluck.  It couldn't be easier and I have yet to serve it and not have it get rave reviews and requests for the recipe.  It goes by many different names...Asian Coleslaw, Ramen Coleslaw, Nutty Coleslaw.....I call mine Crunchy Coleslaw.  It is like many other potluck salads and sides.  Each one is just a little bit different but they are all equally delicious.  I hope you enjoy this version.

Crunchy Coleslaw

1/2 T. hemp oil
1/4 c. slivered almonds
1/4 c. sunflower seeds
1 (14 oz) bag coleslaw mix
4 scallions, whites and light green, sliced
1 small red pepper, diced
2 1/2 T. apple cider vinegar
1/4 c. hemp oil
1 grind fresh pepper
1 (3 oz) pkg ramen noodles (roasted chicken flavor)

Heat 1/2 T. oil in a large skillet.  Add almonds and sunflower seeds.  Cook, stirring, until toasted. Watch carefully so they don't burn.  Remove from hot pan and set aside to cool.

Place coleslaw mix, scallions and red pepper in a large bowl.  Place vinegar, 1/4 c. hemp oil, pepper and the contents of the ramen flavoring in a small jar.  Shake vigorously to blend.  Pour over the vegetables and toss to coat.  Break the ramen noodles into small pieces and add to the coleslaw along with the nuts and sunflowers. Toss lightly and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Print Recipe
