Toss together coleslaw, Ramen noodles, green onions, almonds and sunflower seeds with a tangy Oriental dressing for a salad that feeds a crowd.

We recently had dinner with friends where I served crabcakes and needed the right side dish.

My first idea was coleslaw. Then I thought Chinese coleslaw would be delicious and tangy with crabcakes.

This classic side dish takes me back. Yes ... we called it Chinese coleslaw, oriental salad, Asian  coleslaw, cabbage and ramen noodles ... you name it.

And don’t forget to save the seasoning packets from the noodles.

That’s what makes the dressing!

Grab a bag of crunchy cabbage with sweet carrots or maybe broccoli slaw is more your preference. 

Other ingredient options to change up this traditional salad include diced sweet red pepper, bean sprouts, fresh corn kernels, sugar snap peas, cranberries or pistachios.

Once all the ingredients are mixed together, a drizzle of dressing and a few hours in the fridge allows the flavors to develop fully and for the Ramen noodles to soften slightly yet still hold their crunch.

Be prepared to impress your guests. I promise they will all be asking for your recipe!
