I have made this a few times as listed, but I only really make it for block parties and other potluck dinners, so here are my tweaks for a triple batch. For a triple batch to serve a crowd, use two bags cole slaw and one bag broccoli slaw, and three packages of Ramen noodles. (I use the kind from Whole Foods, so there is no MSG in the seasoning packets. Yes, it exists.)
Do not quite double the dressing mixture, as it will get soggy. Still use one part of the oil, substitiute some seseame oil for the other oil. (I use cocunut oil, and I use rice or coconut vinegar.) I also use a scant 1/4 cup of sugar for the entire trip batch. (It is too sweet for my taste, otherwise.) Add 2-3 packets of the seasoning packets to taste and quickly wisk or blend it together. Pour it over the slaw mixture. Shortly before serving (approx. 30 minutes) add the broken ramen noodles and 1 cup of sunflower seeds. (We have a tree nut allergy, so I cannot use almonds, and because it's for a crowd I rarely add peanuts so it isn't off limits for those allergy folks either.)
My version is always a hit, and people always ask for my substitutions because it is less oily, less sugary, and still has a ton of flavor. It is such a great pot luck dish because there is nothing in it to spoil.
