Ramen Noodle Power

I have almost graduated college and can honestly say that I have never made a pouch of ramen noodles for dinner. Why waste a perfectly good opportunity to cook dinner on an almost instant premade meal? Ramen noodles do have one redeeming value. They are absolutely delicious served atop an Asian-flavored broccoli slaw. This recipe has been taste tested and approved by both my family and roommates. Finally there is a good excuse for non-college age students to buy ramen!

Crunchy Asian Broccoli Slaw
 
Crunchy Asian Broccoli Slaw
Slaw:
12 ounce package of broccoli slaw
5 green onions, sliced with the tops and bottoms removed
½ cup roasted peanuts
1 package of ramen noodles
3 tbsp canola oil

Dressing:
¼ cup vinegar
1 package of chicken flavored ramen noodle seasoning
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup canola oil
dash of sesame oil

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Crumble up the ramen noodles and sauté them until browned. Set aside to cool.

To make the dressing, whisk together all the ingredients. Mix all the slaw ingredients in a large bowl. Add the dressing, toss to coat, and refrigerate for one hour before serving.
