For my wedding, Tricia gave me several of her recipes. This is one of our favorites! It is really light, crunchy, and tangy. We had it tonight as we are recovering from our recent jaunt into the wilderness....well, south Florida wilderness!
2 Tbl butter
1 1/2 C sliced almonds (one small bag isn't enough but I really think it is worth buying 2!)
1 16 oz. pkg. coleslaw mix
1/2 C scallions, chopped
1 pkg ramen noodles oriental flavor
1 C chicken, cut up
2 cans mandarin oranges
In a small skillet, melt the butter over low heat. Add the almonds and cook until the almonds are browned.
In a large bowl, toss together the almonds, coleslaw mix, scallions, ramen noodles (broken up into small pieces) and chicken until combined.
3 Tbl vinegar (I didn't realize I was out of regular vinegar so I used apple cider vinegar tonight, it wasn't bad!)
1 Tbl sugar
1/2 C olive oil
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
packet of flavoring from noodles
In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, sugar, olive oil, sesame oil, salt, pepper, and contents of the flavor packet from noodles and mix well. Pour the dressing over the coleslaw mixture. Add mandarin oranges.
