  • 1 head cabbage, finely shredded
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup almonds chopped
  • 1 pkg Ramen will only use the noodles
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup oil I use sunflower seed oil


  • Toast the sunflower seeds, almonds and Ramen noodles in a skillet until lightly browned (watch carefully - they burn quickly).
  • Using a large bowl, combine the shredded cabbage and scallions. Set aside.
  • Dressing: combine the vinegar, sugar and soy sauce; stir to combine. Slowly add the oil, whisking until emulsified (can use an immersion blender).
  • When ready to serve, add the toasted sunflower seeds, almonds and Ramen noodles to the cabbage and onion mix and stir. Pour the dressing over the slaw and stir until well coated.
