Asian Slaw

Well, it's more Thai I guess but oh so good. I got this recipe from my friend Sarah (thank you!!!) who brought it to a MOPS meeting recently and I just had to make it for the 4th. I can't wait to chow on it today, the dressing is so so good! Wow, two recipes in two days...I don't think I can keep up this pace for long!

Asian (Thai) Slaw
2 bags shredded cabbage
1 bag match stick carrots
2 cups broccoli flowerettes (I didn't add these, I don't usually like raw broccoli...except in broccoli salad and then it's okay)
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup chopped red onion

In skillet, melt 3 TBSP butter on med heat add :
2 packages top ramen noodles (crushed)
1 package top ramen flavoring (chicken)
1 cup slivered almonds (unsalted)
1 cup sunflower seeds (unsalted and UN-roasted)
cook until golden brown-set aside and add to salad just before serving

Dressing:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 T sesame seeds
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup peanut sauce
mix and add just before serving
