Broccoli Slaw with a Twist

I ate a slaw somewhat similar to this while growing up. I've actually never made this type of slaw for myself so I mixed this one up in head, scary I know. This particular recipe is great with any grilled meat. My husband who is not a big vinegar fan enjoyed this side dish too. Give this a try the next time you want a cool salad to go with your grilled dinner. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.

2 packages Ramen Noodles of your choice-crunched up
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup canola oil
Or use 1 cup of Paul Newman's Balsamic Vinaigrette instead of the oil and vinegar
1 cup salted sunflower seeds
1 package broccoli slaw
1/4 cup white sugar
2 T soy sauce
2 T butter

Melt butter into a medium sauce pan. When melted, add in the crunched up noodles and toast in pan until slightly golden. Let noodles cool completely. Now mix together the balsamic vinegar, canola oil, sugar, Ramen noodle seasoning pack, and soy sauce. Place broccoli slaw in a bowl with a tight fitting lid and pour over dressing. Cover and place in fridge for at least 2 hours. Right before serving, add the sun flower seeds and noodles. The noodles are very crunchy and taste so good in this salad. A weird combo but a good one!
