  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup white vinegar


  • Clean and chop 2-3 ribs celery and slice 3-5 green onions.
  • Mix the celery, onions, one pkg. broccoli slaw, 3/4 cup sliced almonds, and 1/2 cup sunflower seeds. Mix well.
  • Add one can of rice noodles and mix.
  • Mix dressing: 1/2 cup sunflower oil (or other good oil), 1 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup white or rice vinegar.  Add just before serving and toss well. Note: you may not need quite all the dressing. Just add until all the mixture is moist.


Pro Tips

  1. Use a good oil. Sunflower oil is suggested, but other vegetable oil will be fine. Some people like olive oil, but not my favorite here.
  2. I tend to use 3 ribs of celery and vary the onion by their size.
  3. Most bags of broccoli slaw will be 12 oz but maybe 16 oz. Either size is fine here.
  4. I add the dressing and noodles at the end.
  5. If I think there will be significant leftovers, I reserve part of the slaw, dressing, and noodles for later. I like the noodles crunchy in the leftovers. Or you can leave them out and sprinkle at serving.
  6. Good refrigerated covered tightly for 2-3 days
