Broccoli Slaw and Raman Noodle Salad - Shower Recipe 2

This recipe has been kind of passed along over the years. I think originally it was my sister's mother-in-law's recipe. She made it for my sister's bridal shower like 10 years ago. I've made it for other friends' showers and so on. It is really easy.

2 Raman noodle packages (Any flavor you like. I usually use chicken.)
1 package of broccoli slaw ( You can find this in the produce section, usually by the packaged broccoli florets. What it is, is broccoli that has been shredded into a slaw like cabbage.)
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup cashews
1 can of mandarin oranges, optional (I don't use, but if you like mandarin oranges, knock yourself out.)
4 green onions, chopped, optional
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
both seasoning packets from the Raman
1 cup oil (vegetable or olive)

Break up the Raman noodles and place in a large mixing bowl. You DO NOT cook the noodles. The dressing will soften them. Add the broccoli slaw, sunflower seeds, cashews, oranges and onions to the bowl, mix.

In a smaller bowl, whisk together the sugar, vinegar and seasoning from the packets. Add the oil and whisk well.

This can be put together the night before. However, do not dress until morning of your party. I like to dress it a few hours before so the noodles have a chance to soften.

*Note: You probably only need to use 3/4 of the dressing. Add a little at a time and judge for yourself. But, I never use all of it. It gets too soggy.
