Picnic Cole Slaw

Last week I posted my recipe for Baby Back Ribs. It's one of my go to recipes when I am entertaining a large group for dinner. One of my favorite sides for a large group is this what I call my Picnic Cole Slaw. This is one of those recipes that I am not even sure where it came from. It's on a piece of paper showing the stains from years of preparation. What are your tried and true recipes? You know the ones that will turn out perfectly and everyone will enjoy?

Picnic Cole Slaw

1 bag of slaw mix
2 packages of Chicken flavored Ramen Soup
10 Green Onions, finely chopped

1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 sugar
2 chicken flavor packets from soup

Mix together slaw and green onions. Crush noodles and add to slaw mixture. Whisk together dressing ingredients and pour over slaw. Mix well. Refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours. Add sunflower seeds just before serving.

I am linking this recipe to Tuesday's at the Table at All The Small Stuff and Tempt My Tummy Tuesday's at Blessed With Grace.

  1. What an interesting use of ramen noodles. I like the idea of adding crunch to the slaw... I wonder if it's possible to find ramen without MSG....

  2. hi julie! yes -- i can do coleslaw! in fact i just made a big batch of this last week for a birthday party. am glad you posted this recipe -- it's a great one! (i always eat way too much of this coleslaw!) sometimes i add slivered almonds and/or sesame seeds, too -- and my sister uses a recipe that also adds some small, cut-up pieces of chicken breast. the huge bags of shredded cabbage at sam's are always a great deal & perfect for this colesaw (if you want a big batch). thanks for sharing. the picture & recipe for your ribs last week look awesome.

  3. wow ramen, great idea..nice crunch..great recipe..bookmarked


  4. This is kind of like a broccoli slaw recipe I make. One addition my recipe has is to crush the ramen noodles and add them at the end for extra crunch.
    You can't go wrong with slaws with BBQ's! Everyone loves them and this one especially!

  5. Julia - I think you've given me a challenge to figure out seasoning for this so we don't have to use the seasoning packet from the ramen noodles. Thanks!
