Oriental Slaw

This is a refreshing change from regular coleslaw. It's easy to put together and is a crowd pleaser. My mother-in-law makes it all the time!

1 head Napa cabbage, shredded
1 package Oriental Ramen noodles (save seasoning packet)
1 package slivered almonds
2 1/2 oz. sesame seeds (optional)
4-5 green onions, chopped

(Dressing Ingredients and Recipe Follow)

Crush noodles in package. Combine noodles, almonds, and sesame seeds in bowl and pour onto cookie sheet (jelly roll pan is ideal). Bake at 375 degrees for 5-10 minutes at most; watch to make sure they toast, but don't burn. Combine with cabbage and green onions in large bowl.

1/2 cup oil
3 T. white vinegar
1/4 c. sugar
seasoning packet from noodles

Put dressing ingredients in jar and shake well. Pour dressing over slaw 10 minutes before serving and toss.
