Broccoli slaw salad

This recipe uses something that I almost never buy: ramen noodles and the little flavor packets that come with them.  My friend Kathy gave me the directions after everyone in her family raved about it during a recent gathering.  It's quick and easy, and all the other ingredients are healthy, so why not?!

The slaw that was available in our produce section was a mixture of mostly broccoli, along with red cabbage and carrots for great color.

Broccoli Slaw Salad

1 large package (or 2 small ones) of broccoli slaw
1 bunch of scallions, sliced
1 c almonds, sliced
1 c sunflower seeds
2 packages of ramen noodles, beef flavored, broken but not cooked

2/3 c vegetable oil
1/2 c sugar
1/3 c cider vinegar
2 flavor packets from the ramen noodles

Mix the slaw through the broken noodles in a large serving bowl.  Mix the oil through the beef flavor packets and pour onto slaw.  Chill.
