Ramen Noodle Coleslaw

This is one of my favorite salad recipes.  I've made it for years, and it's always well-received at potlucks and parties.  I knew it would be a safe choice for Little Devil's Asian-themed graduation party.  I knew not all of the guests would appreciate sushi, but I knew all of them would appreciate this cool, crisp slaw.  It's a great accompaniment to any grill or barbecue dish, certainly don't save it only for Asian-inspired meals.  It goes great with everything!
One of my favorite Summer Salads!
Don't save it for just Asian meals, it's
super with everything!

Ramen Noodle Coleslaw2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 (3 ounce) package chicken flavored ramen noodles, crushed-seasoning packet reserved
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 medium head cabbage, shredded
5 green onions, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a medium bowl whisk together oil, vinegar, sugar, ramen noodle flavoring packet, salt and pepper.  Set aside.  Place sesame seeds and almonds on a baking sheet.  Bake in the pre-heated oven for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.  (Watch carefully, they burn fast!)  In a large salad bowl, combine cabbage, green onions and crushed, uncooked ramen noodles.  Add toasted sesame seeds and almonds.  Pour reserved dressing over and toss to coat.  Serve immediately.
