ORIENTAL COLESLAW
from the Isaac H. Evans

1 head green cabbage
1⁄2 head red cabbage
1 bunch scallions
6 carrots
1⁄2 C. chopped almonds
1 C. sunflower seeds
2 packages of Ramen noodles (Oriental flavor)

Dressing:

1⁄2 C. vegetable oil or olive oil
1⁄4 C. vinegar (I prefer red wine vinegar but white or apple cider work as well.)
3 T. tamari
1 T. sugar
2 packages of Oriental flavoring included with the Ramen

Finely shred the green and red cabbage and the carrots. Chop the scallions. Crush the Ramen into small pieces (best done by gently breaking it before opening the package!). Mix all prepared ingredients in a large bowl. Add the almonds and sunflower seeds. Mix well.

In a separate bowl combine all the ingredients for the dressing and mix very well allowing the sugar to dissolve. Pour dressing over coleslaw and mix well.

This prepares enough for a party (or 22 passengers on a boat!) so scale down the amounts for yourself or a more intimate gathering. It’s also nice if you prepare this a little ahead of time and occasionally stir everything to let the dressing act as a marinade.

I hope you agree that this is a nice change from traditional coleslaw!
