  • 2/3 Cup Sliced Almonds
  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Seeds
  • 1 Whole Bag Coleslaw Mix

  1. Place a rack in the center of your oven and preheat the oven to 425°. Crumble the ramen noodles onto a baking sheet and spread them in a single layer along with the almonds. Bake for 5 minutes, remove from the oven, add the sesame seeds, and toss, then bake for 1 to 3 additional minutes until fragrant and golden. Watch closely so that the mixture does not burn. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients.
  3. In a serving bowl, toss together the salad ingredients and toasted mixture. Drizzle the dressing over the top, then toss again to combine.
  4. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
