Have you had this Asian slaw recipe before? What a great time of the year for something cool and delicious like this. It seems to be one that has been passed around in the last few years in one form or another and it really is a great recipe for a party. It serves a lot of people and most folks seem to like it, with a sweet oil and vinegar mixture that is very good. Most men seem to like it too.
1 (16 oz) package of slaw mix
2 (3 oz) packages of beef flavored Ramen noodle soup mix
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 cup Sunflower seeds (I left these out)
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
Remove flavor packets from soup mix and set aside; crush noodles, place noodles in bottom of large bowl. Top with slaw mix, sprinkle with almonds, sunflower seeds, green onions.
Whisk together contents of flavor packets, sugar, oil & vinegar. Pour over slaw mix. Cover and chill for 24 hours. Mix well before serving.
Yields 8-10 servings. This is a great recipe to double for a large crowd. There was none left in my bowl! Enjoy!
We’re having a party next week…a “share your favorite yardsale/thrifting find” party! Go and read about it all here and come back next Thursday and we’ll all link up. Don’t forget to add a link back to my blog too on your post so everyone can hop around and visit all the thrifty finds. I’ll probably put the post up (with Mr. Linky) late Wednesday night, so you can all have plenty of time to find it and get your links going.
Birmingham girls, don’t forget to pick up a copy of the Birmingham News today for my feature in Spaces! I’ll report about it on Sunday.
:o) My mother has been making Asian slaw for years. It’s very similiar to yours except she uses broccoli slaw…which can be hard to find sometimes… and no green onions! I think I’ll try your version next time I make it.
That is a super salad and I have always needed to get the recipe. Thanks!!!!

This stuff is so yummy! We call it Chinese Cole Slaw and use rice vinegar in it. It makes a ton and the left overs get kinda soggy the next day, so be sure you have a crowd over when you make. I’ll have to try your version with the slaw mix. We’ve been using just bagged cabbage, but I think the carrots mixed in looks great. Off to read your yardsale post and get some tips from the queen…smile!
Congratulations on your article, Rhoda!! You’re so famous! I have wanted a good recipe for that salad for months, and I KNOW you’re giving a good version of it! Thank you!
If it’s not too late, I’d love to comment on this Asian Slaw recipe.. I had heard of different versions of it before but never tried it until you published yours…I think the photos helped sell it. Well, it is going to be a regular at our house from now on. It was so easy and so delicious! Thanks Ms. Rhoda!! You are an all around great homemaker and so sweet to share your ideas with us.

Hey, Ms. Brown-Eyes! So glad you tried this easy recipe. It really is a good one & easy to double for a crowd. And what could be easier than picking up a bag of cole slaw and adding the ingredients.
I'm happy to share & happy you all love it too! It's one of those keeper recipes.
I recently came across your site and enjoy it very much! This recipe you’ve written about is actually a staple on my summertime menu – we LOVE it!
