Get Your Crunch On with A Light Broccoli Slaw Salad

Now that spring is in full swing, why not get your meals & snacks into the swing of it by incorporating more plants into your diet? As you know, a diet rich in fruits, veggies, beans, peas, nuts, seeds, legumes, & whole grains provides you with the wholesome energy your body needs. As you scan the recipe below, you may be wondering what a RD is thinking featuring Ramen Noodles! Well, I ask you to hold on for a few minutes to allow me to explain….I modified the recipe to make it healthier, while at the same time increased it’s flavor. I did this by cutting the sugar to 1/3 cup (the original recipe calls for 1/2 cup, which is much too sweet & I use 1 packet of the seasoning, NOT 2). This salad is a crunchy, flavorful, light accompaniment to your lean protein. I invite you to use this recipe as a guide & explore your creativity by using other seeds, nuts or crunchy veggies. Cooking/preparing your own food is the best and most affordable way to nourish your bodies, so get chopping!

1 cup toasted slivered almonds

2/3      cup oil
½        cup cider vinegar
1/3       cup sugar
1           seasoning packet from the beef Ramen Noodles

In a large bowl, break the Ramen noodles into small clumps (reserve the seasoning packets). Add the remaining ingredients & toss well.

Prepare the dressing in a jar & shake vigorously. Toss salad with the dressing & enjoy:)

Bon Appetit!
