Do you have a few “signature dishes” that people look for when they come to a party?
ME? Of course I do … I actually have a few and it’s kind of necessary to pick and choose on each occasion.
This is one of those recipes. All time favorite and each time we have a BBQ or Pool Party, it’s on the menu.
Come on now, be optimistic! We will eventually get back to having BBQ and pool parties soon … this quarantine stuff can’t go on forever … can it?
Simple, simple, SIMPLE easy to make … and doesn’t require any funky ingredients.
Most people like this, even if it’s based on cabbage. Just an absolute delicious salad for those summer bbqs!
Bag of coleslaw (or just plain cabbage, shredded, small to medium size head)
8 green onions, sliced thin
1/2 cup peanuts (or other nuts you like), toasted and cooled (used plain spanish peanuts)
1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted and cooled (skipped as I didn’t have any)
2 pkgs ramen noodles, crushed
1/2 red pepper, chopped
4 tbs sugar. You can use a sugar substitute of choice if desired
I used 3 packets of Stevia in the Raw and it was perfect!! I may do it this way from now on (I’ve skipped the sugar as well with ok results)
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil (or oil of choice)
2 tsp salt (I’ve always used less)
6 tbs rice wine vinegar
*or, you can do like I sometimes do and just use the seasoning packet and omit the salt and pepper*
Place all veggies in a large mixing bowl.
Just before serving, mix in the seeds/nuts, crushed noodles and toss gently with the salad dressing. Serve.
*Feel free to not dress the complete salad. Serve up smaller bowl and replenish as needed (only because the leftovers will be soggy but still yummy!)
Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties … go check them out!
