Japanese Cole Slaw

The recipe below comes via Nancy Fuchs Kreimer who in addition to being a brilliant and charismatic rabbi makes some great vegetarian food.


Bring dressing in a jar and the other ingredients in a bowl, or(if
extra hurried) still in their packages from the store.

2 lbs dry cole slaw in plastic bags from the supermarket(it is sold like this)
2 packages worth of Ramen noodles, broken into little pieces
cashews, sesame seeds,sunflower seeds, peanuts, almonds(any combo that
is available to you)
8 scallions chopped(required) along with
carrots and/or green or red bell peppers chopped(optional)


4 tsp sugar
6 Tbl vinegar
1 cup oil (peanut if possible)
2 flavor packets from the Ramen packages

Mix non dressing ingredients in a bowl
Mix dressing ingredients in a jar with a lid
Assemble and serve.
If this sits out for many hours already mixed, that is also good.
Noodles will be soft instead of crunchy but people seem to like this
dish either way.
