Mary's Broccoli Slaw

I made this for our recent EGA meeting lunch and it seems to have been a big hit - at least I think so when someone asks for the recipe! So I thought I would share it with all of you. Sorry no picture.

Mary's Broccoli Slaw
2 - 3 oz pkgs of oriental flavor ramen noodles
2 - 12 oz bags of broccoli slaw (in bagged lettuce section)
1/2 cup roasted, unsalted sunflower seeds
5 chopped green onions and tops
3 oz pkt of oscar mayer bacon bits

Dressing Mix:
3/4 cup olive oil (light flavor)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 ramen noodle seasoning packet
2 drops sesame oil

Put the ramen noodles in a bag and crush. Add sunflower seeds, mix well.
In a small bowl mix the dressing ingredients. Put in a jar or container to transport to the pot luck.
In serving bowl mix the slaw and green onions.

When ready to serve add the noodle/sunflower seed mix and bacon to the slaw and toss well. Add dressing and toss well. I used only about two thirds of the dressing.

Notes: I mixed the dressing the night before, not sure if that helped the flavor or not, but it seemed too.
I thought about adding grapes or dried cranberries or slivered almonds, but did not.
It really helped to wait to mix the dressing with the slaw and noodles so to keep the noodles crisp. I did have some leftovers the next day, and while it still tasted good, that noodle crunch was missing!

Thanks, this sounds yummy! My only problem is trying to find broccoli slaw. I needed some last week for another recipe and found that several of my local groceries didn't carry it.
