I had to work this evening, at my get-out-of-the-house, job! So when I get home its generally a little after 7:00. Tonight I decided I should have a bowl of this coleslaw for dinner - with a possible popcorn chaser - still to be popped! This is a great side dish for a Thanksgiving Table as well - or Christmas :)
1 pkg. bagged coleslaw (grated cabbage & carrots)
1 pkg. ramen noodles (any flavor), broken in the package into many small pieces
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. slivered almonds
1/8 c. vinegar
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. canola oil
1 tbsp. soy sauce
Dump your coleslaw into a bowl. In a small saucepan take your broken noodles, toss the flavor packet in the trash, add the butter and almonds to the saucepan and stir over medium heat until the almonds & noodles are a light golden brown. Set aside. In the same small saucepan, mix the vinegar, sugar, oil & soy sauce. Bring to a boil and let boil about 1 minute. Let chill if you desire. When ready to eat your coleslaw put your noodle mixture in the bowl with the coleslaw, stir, add your dressing, stir & eat! Don't add your dressing until you are ready to eat - as it will get soggy. It is DELISH! Lots of times I just make the stuff up and put in containers in the fridge - then when I want a bowl I mix up just enough to eat and save the rest for the next day!
& Happy Thanksgiving to all!
