Asian Slaw

Every time I discover and cook something new that turns out delish, I can't help feeling proud of myself. Like I did it! I am awesome. I am a good wife. Huz actually ate something different and healthy today. Rejoice!

I made this yummy Asian-y coleslaw for dinner yesterday, which I found on and tweaked a bit. And like I said, I was all proud of myself. Tehe. Go me.

Here is the recipe:

1 package ramen noodles, crushed
10 ounces cashew or almond pieces (I used raw almonds, which gave it more crunch.)
1 (16 ounce) package shredded coleslaw mix
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce

1. In a preheated 350-degree oven, toast the crushed noodles and nuts for 10-15 minutes (stirring twice) until golden brown.
2. In a large bowl, combine the coleslaw, green onions, toasted ramen noodles and nuts.
3. To prepare the dressing, whisk together the sugar, oil, vinegar and soy sauce. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss and serve.

My husband wants me to look for new recipes, because he's sick of my food, which is, let's face it, pretty much a one-trick pony. But, but, but I'm so lazy.
