Asian cole slaw

As the weather is getting nicer, I am craving picnic foods big time. This recipe is a summer stand by in our house, we love it!  This recipe is a combo of my Aunt Frankie’s and my mother in law’s.  I have been known to eat it straight from the container while standing by the fridge, it’s addictive.
You will need:

1 bag cole slaw (preferably angel hair)
8 scallions, thinly sliced
2 packages of ramen, just the noodles, broken up into pieces
3 teaspoons sesame seeds
2/3 cup slivered almonds
*if you want to add some protein, toss in 1 1/2 cups of diced chicken breast

for the dressing:
3/4 cup canola oil
6 tablespoons rice vinegar
4 tablespoons sugar
salt & pepper

In a small saucepan over low heat, brown the almonds and sesame seeds in a small amount of vegetable oil – takes around 8-9 minutes.  In a large bowl, mix the cole slaw and scallions together.  Put the crunched up ramen noodles on top, then add the toasted almonds and sesame seeds.  Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together well.  Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss well.  Cover and let sit in the fridge for at least 3 hours prior to serving so the noodles soften.
