Aunt Elaine's Broccoli Slaw

My sister-in-law, Elaine, is a great cook.  Every family reunion she makes this delicious Broccoli Salad that everyone loves.  It's easy and delicious and I know your family will love it, too.

Aunt Elaine's Broccoli Slaw

1 - 2 bags of broccoli slaw
1/2 cup oil (I use canola oil)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 packet of Ramen Noodles, chicken flavor (orange package)
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup sliced almonds

To make dressing, mix together the oil, balsamic vinegar, sugar and flavor packet from the Ramen Noodles.  Mix well and set aside.

Crunch the noodles from the Ramen Noodle package. (I put them in a Ziploc bag and bammed the noodles with the handle of a knife.)  Add sunflower seeds and sliced almonds, then mix with the 2 Tablespoons of melted butter.  Spread on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 5 - 10 minutes.  Set aside.

When ready to serve, put broccoli slaw in a bowl and put the noodle, sunflower, almond mixture on top.  Pour the dressing over the slaw and noodle mixture.  Mix well and serve.
Crunchy and delicious!

**This slaw is best if eaten right away.  It's not as good the 2nd day because it loses it's crunch.  But don't worry, there probably won't be any leftovers anyway!.
