Cole Slaw

I'm sure you all have made a salad or a slaw similar to this but I found this one and it was so easy and so good!!  It's one of Paula Deen's receipes so you know it's good and probably fattening.   We had it with Chicken Pot Pie one night and then with Lasagna and it was great with both.  Donna
Cole Slaw
2 bags of Ramen Noodle soup in Oriental
3/4  stick butter
1/4 cup slivered almonds
2 bags of traditional cole slaw (pre-packaged)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
chopped green onion, for garnish
Dressing Mix
3/4 cup conola oil
1/2 cup brown sugar (light, packed)
1/4 cup apple cider vineger
1 ramen noodle seasoning packet (oriental)
Put ramen noodles in a bag and crush them with rolling pin while melting butter in large skillet over low/medium heat.  Add crushed noodles and slivered almonds to the skillet and saute, stirring occasionally (keep temp. at low/medium heat). Meanwhile whisk together all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.  Place slaw into bowl and toss with the noodles and almonds and sunflower seeds.  Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.  Garnish with green onions. 
I would not toss this all together until you are ready to serve.
