Sweet & Sour Broccoli Slaw

Need more veggies! That's what the little voice in my head keeps telling me.  Between making and eating most of the peanut butter balls and the recent ice cream purchase, I need more vegetables in my diet!   I didn't want to miss my chance on the ice cream since it was a Limited Edition and on sale for under $3!  Mmmm so good.....Dreyer's (Edy's for those of you on the East coast) Slow Churned S'mores ice cream.

Okay, so maybe this recipe isn't the healthiest vegetable choice, but I had the ingredients and it is very good.  Plus, it has to be better than stuffing my face with previously mentioned goodies. (I tried to cut the calories a bit by substituting Splenda for the sugar.)

Sweet & Sour Broccoli Slaw
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1 pack of chicken flavoring from Ramen
1 bag of broccoli slaw
1 package of Ramen noodles, crushed
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (I use walnuts)

Mix dressing, pour over broccoli slaw and noodles. Add sunflower seeds before serving.

I acquired this recipe from my sister Patty's friend while I was visiting St. Louis back in 2002.


  1. Think this would work as a one dish dinner if you added cubed chicken breast that has been browned with some fresh ginger in a little oil?

  2. Is that what you ended up doing?

  3. No, but I would have if I'd had some chicken all ready to put in it. Or marinated, stir-fried beef (in which case beef-flavor ramen)? I LOVE the basic recipe, though.
