Servings 8



  • 1 pound shredded cabbage (bagged; I like the kind with carrots and green/purple cabbage for color)
  • 2 packages Ramen dry soup mix (beef flavored is traditionally used but I've made it with chicken)
  • 1 bunch green onions (sliced thin)
  • 1 small package sliced almonds (about 2/3 cup, toasted, or use roasted Almond Accents, see note)
  • 1 cup dry roasted sunflower seed kernels


  • Spices from Ramen noodles
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup salad oil (such as Canola)
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar


  • Crush Ramen package before opening to crumble noodles. Remove seasoning packet and prepare dressing. Refrigerate dressing.
  • Layer slaw ingredients in a bowl, cover and refrigerate.
  • Toss slaw with dressing just before serving.


These are optional if preparing for someone with a nut allergy.
