Linda's Kickin' Coleslaw

A few years ago my girlfriends and I gathered every Tuesday for "Girls Dinner".  It was an awesome tradition that simply became too much when lives got busier but in the solid year that we maintained this tradition some pretty incredible recipes were shared.  My dear friend, Mackenzie,  shared a few recipes that made their way into the Girls Dinner Cookbook.  When her mother, Linda, who I find to be one of the most lovingly entertaining women I know, saw these recipes she immediately reminded us that they were in fact her recipes and not Mackenzie's.  We laughed no less than a solid hour about this seeming "mis-print" and I promised to always give credit where credit is rightfully due!  So here it is for LINDA McCRACKEN!!!  The one, the only, Linda's Kickin' Coleslaw!

Linda’s “Kickin” Coleslaw
2 packages of coleslaw
8 to 10 green onions chopped
½ cup white vinegar
2 TBS of soy sauce
½ cup of sugar
1 cup of vegetable oil
½ cup melted butter
2 packages of Ramin Noodles (yes brings you right back to college)
8 oz sliced almonds
Cookie sheet
Small Saucepan
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Break up the Ramin Noodles with your hands.  
You might need to really get in there and mash them with the back side of a wooden spoon.
Spread the Ramin Noodles and almonds on cookie sheet along with ½ cup melted butter.  
Put in oven for 10 minutes.
Poor two packages of coleslaw into a bowl.
In a small saucepan combine white vinegar, soy sauce, sugar and vegetable oil.  
Heat and stir. 
Take Ramin Noodle mixture out of the oven and poor into the bowl with the coleslaw.  Bring over the saucepan mixture and poor over top.  Then mix all together.  If you are making this ahead of time put the toasted noodles and almonds in a ziplock bag and add just before serving so that they don't get soggy.
You then have Linda’s KICKIN Coleslaw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kitchen Tip: 
One of the best additions to my kitchen I have ever received was when my mom got me two of these large tupperware bowls with a lid.  There is nothing worse than having to try to mix something up in a bowl that isn't big enough.  The beauty of these is that you can do all of your mixing, then simply pop the lid on the top and go!  Transfer to a serving dish when you are ready but don't worry about anything spilling!  LOVE IT!
