Here is the recipe!
1 bag of broccoli slaw
2 packages of ramen noodles but I only used 1 tonight and I will add more to the left overs
1 can each of: low sodium: Pinto Beans, Black beans, Garbanzo Beans, and corn
1 avocado cubed
1/2 each of a red and orange bell peppers cubed *optional or whatever color you have
I used cashews but any kind of nut would be fine or you can leave them out but just make sure to add them on top as they get really soggy.
Dressing: 2 ramen noodle packets
juice from 1 lime
sesame oil about 1tsp
regular cooking oil I use smart balance about 2-3 TBS
spoonful of sugar
a couple TBS of vinegar (i used rice wine because I had it but you can use regular)
I didn't really measure I just poured in so use your best judgement.
Whisk all together until the sugar and seasoning packet are dissolved.
Dice and slice all the ingredients and toss together. pour over the dressing and toss again.
I let it sit for 5-10 minutes before I served it but if its going to be longer then that before you serve it I would wait to put the dressing on as the noodles get soggy.
And this is what it looked like!!!
You could put your own twist on this salad. It is going to be perfect for summer BBQ's and friendly get togethers!
I wanted to add cilantro but the store was out of it. You could also add tomatoes, grilled chicken, any other kind of bean or veggie. You could even add red pepper flake to the dressing for a spicy touch. Or taco seasoning for a kick! Give it a try and let me know what you think and what you change.
But first lets give this salad a NAME!!!!
