Crunchy Asian Slaw
When I saw this recipe it almost reminded me of the Crack Cole Slaw I'm addicted to. This recipe has so many good thing in it I had to give it a try.
Recipe from-Tasty Kitchen
3 cups Napa Cabbage, Thinly Sliced ( didn't use)
2 cups Green Or Purple Cabbage, Thinly Sliced ( added additional cabbage)
1 Large Carrot, Shredded
1/2 Red Pepper Chopped
5 Green Onions, Chopped (use 2 Of Them For Garnish)
2 Tablespoons Butter ( didn't use)
1 package Ramen Noodles, Noodles only, 3 Ounce Package
1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds + More For Garnish
1/2 cups Slivered Almonds
1 whole Lime, Juiced
1 clove Garlic, Minced
2 Fresno Peppers, Seeded And Minced ( used Haberno's)
1 teaspoon Ginger, Freshly Microplane Grated
1 Tablespoon Tamari (regular Soy Sauce Will Work) ( Used Soy Sauce- low sodium)
1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
1 whole Lime, Juiced
1/4 cups Olive Oil
1 pinch Salt And Pepper, If Needed( didn't use)
Prepare the dressing-combine all of the listed ingredients (except olive oil and salt/pepper) in a medium-sized bowl. While whisking it together, slowly add in the oil as you continue to whisk. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine cabbages, carrot, red pepper and 3 of the chopped green onions. Set aside.
Place the ramen on a cookies sheet which has been sprayed with oil and place it under the broiler until the ramen starts to turn light brown. Keep and eye on it, and once the ramen starts to brown take the tray out of the oven carefully and tossed the ramen so all sides are toasted. Once both sides are toasted remove from the oven and set aside and allow to cool.
The sesame seed were toasted the same way as the ramen. I don't toast the ramen and sesame together because the sesame seeds seem burn . Love toasted sesame seeds so they go on their own little pan to toast.
Added the slivered almonds- didn't toast them
Add the noodles, sesame seeds and almonds to the cabbage mixture along with dressing. Toss to combine.
Add the lime juice to the salad.
Cut the remaining two green onions and add to the salad. More sesame seeds can be added.
Toss to combine.
Serve right away or can be refrigerated for later.
