chinese coleslaw

This is my favorite salad, I got the recipe from my wondous friend and office cohort Shari. Whenever I make it David and I eat it all that same day cause it's that good!

1 (16 oz) bag of coleslaw
1 chicken breast, cooked and diced
4 green onions, chopped
1/2 c. slivered almonds
2 tbsp sesame seed (optional)
2 (3 oz) pkgs ramen noodles, chicken flavor, broken into bits
1/4 c. oil*
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
spice from ramen soup

Toss together the coleslaw and chopped green onions. Toast the almonds, sesame seeds and ramen noodles on a cookie sheet in the oven. mix oil, sugar, pepper and spice from ramen noodle soup and add to coleslaw. Toss in the toasted almond mixture and chicken. Makes 3 quarts. AMAZING!!!

*The original recipe calls for 1/2 c. oil but I found that you could halve it and it still tastes fine.

I love this! It's one of my favorite summer salads! My newest favorite is the linguine veggie-rama that Ree posted a couple of weeks (months?) back. YUM!!
