This stuff is addicting.I have some short cuts to share. I used 16oz.bag Dole Classic Cole Slaw. Toast the alomnds & sesame seeds in a saute pan (why heat the oven) Just put them both in the pan crank the heat to high and constantly stir. Has soon as they start to brown turn the heat off and coninut stiring until golden brown. 3 min tops. As for the dressing use rice wine vinegar and added 2T soy sauce. Since I used all 16oz. I needed a little more dressing. Instead of making more I used Good Seasons Asian Sesame with Ginger bottled dressing.

I made this to take to a potluck and it really got soggy. I would suggest NOT adding the dressing and crunchy ingredients until RIGHT BEFORE serving. Leftovers are not very good because the noodles and nuts get mushy and the dressing soaks into the slaw making it look like sauerkraut. The salad is wonderful, three stars are because the recipe should warn about the sog factor.

MMMMMMMM!!!!!! I love this recipe! Try toasting the Ramen noodles along with the almonds and sesame seeds. Toasting makes them a little crunchier and they don't get soggy from the dressing.

Doubled the recipe for a crowd and it disappeared faster than any other dish on the table. I used 2-16 oz. pkgs of shredded cabbage, 3 pkgs. of Oriental flavored Ramen noodles, added about 1/4 c. soy sauce to the dressing (and thus, omitted the salt entirely), and tripled the almonds. I also substituted Splenda for the sugar since we are a family of diabetics. Great recipe. Next time I will try this as a summer main dish by adding some grilled chicken breast on top. Thanks for sharing.

Such a versatile recipe. I have made a version of this one for the past 15 years. I agree with a previous reviewer; use rice wine vinegar instead of white vinegar. If you are fortunate enough to have a Japanese market where you live, buy the Nissin Ramen (chicken flavor). It comes in a yellow and red package and is already seasoned. This ramen makes all the difference in the world.

I've been looking for an asian-type coleslaw, because my husband doesn't like mayonnaise...and boy, did this recipe please everyone! The first run was a little too sweet for us, so I now reduce the sugar to only 1 tablespoon. Also, for the oil, I use half sesame oil and half vegetable oil; this really picks up the flavor.

AWESOME!!! We eat this all the time for picnics and at home. My kids request it!! I use olive oil and red wine vinegar. Brocollislaw is perfect for this recipe. I also use sunflower seeds instead of almonds but both are great. EVERYONE asks me for the recipe. DOUBLE DRESSING.

This recipe was great and easy, my boyfriend loved it. I did substitute 1 tablespoon sesame seed oil instead of the veg. oil for flavor. Thanks.
