SUPER BOWL SALAD
I’ll be headed to a Super Bowl party on Sunday carrying the following dish. The colorful salad scores big points for me and earns rave reviews every time I serve it. Make it yourself and become a victorious guest.
By the way, I’ll be cheering for the Steelers since I was born in Pittsburgh.
1 bag slaw mix or 1 head Napa cabbage, sliced (I use the slaw mix)
1 bunch green onions, sliced
2 Tbsp margarine or butter
2 packages of Ramin noodles, crushed-- no seasoning packs
2/3 cup slivered almonds
½ small jar sesame seeds (about 2 Tbsp)
½ cup oil ( I mix mostly vegetable and part sesame oil)
½ cup sugar
½ white vinegar or cider vinegar
2 Tbsp soy sauce
Melt butter or margarine to brown noodles. Add the almonds and sesame seeds and slight brown.( I do this the day before or earlier in the day.)
Combine oil, sugar, vinegar and soy sauce. Heat to dissolve sugar. (This can also be done ahead.) Let cool.
Combine slaw mix and sliced green onions.
Toss everything together right before serving.
