  • Ready In

  1. In a large bowl, toss together the coleslaw mix, green onions and broccoli. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Crumble the ramen noodles into a bowl, and mix with the almonds and sunflower seeds. Sprinkle the seasoning packets over all. Add to the skillet; cook and stir until noodles and nuts are toasted, about 8 minutes.
  3. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the sugar, vinegar, oil and soy sauce. Seal, and shake vigorously to blend.
  4. Just before serving, combine the slaw mixture with the nuts and noodles. Pour the dressing over all, and stir briefly to coat.


  • Note
  • This can be made ahead of time, just keep the mixtures separate until serving time. I always put the mixtures in big resealable bags and put in a big bowl right before serving time.

I've been looking for this recipe forever!

you definitely do not need all that butter. I used 1/2 and probably could have cut down more (don't need any butter for the nuts but not sure about the noodles. next time I might do them separ...

Turned out excellent! I saw another recipe similar to this and combined the two. I used just shredded cabbage instead of the coleslaw mix and cut up my own carrots. I also used 3 packages of Ram...
