THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #78 (PICNIC RECIPES) and Ramen Noodle Coleslaw

Ramen Noodle Coleslaw
This is what you do when you have some left over coleslaw and some Ramen noodles in the cupboard and no one is eating either one of them, create something new and different that is enjoyed by all. This is a great little salad that would be perfect for any picnic, backyard party or potluck.

FREEZER TIP:  This was a GREAT idea, created way long ago. I freeze anything and everything I can. Green Onions are one of those items we don't eat often and only need when a recipe calls for it. Green Onions are cheap, but who wants to run to the store every time you need a handful. This is why I LOVE this freezer tip. Wash and cut the entire bundle of green onions, lay them flat on a cookie sheet and freezer for a few hours (or overnight). Then when they are completely frozen get an empty water bottle and store them in that until needed. When a recipe calls for some green onions you just pour out what is needed and keep the rest frozen.

Ramen Noodle Coleslaw
adapted by me, found at Green Acres Hobby Farm

1 pack slaw
green onions finely chopped (approx 1/4 cup or less)
1 pack ramen noodles (chicken flavor) broken into small pieces
3/4 cup oil
1 tbsp pepper
2 to 4 slices of crumbed fresh bacon
4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
4 tbsp sugar
1 of the chicken pack flavorings in ramen noodle package
1/2 cup toasted seeds (sunflower or almonds)

This recipe is best when it's made the night before, this allows the Ramen Noodles to get soft and all of the flavors to mix together. Toss all of the ingredients together, except for the toasted seeds and chill overnight, add the seeds right before serving.

    I shared my recipe for BBQ Chicken with Homemade Russian Dressing Marinade.
    When you marinate it for 24 hours, this chicken turns out full of flavor and really moist.
