Summer vacation is all about sharing time with friends and family. Cook outs seem to be the venue of choice. Here's a twist on the old coleslaw recipe. It is a real hit with all ages.

Chinese Cabbage Salad
1/2 to 1 head cabbage, shredded
4 scallions, chopped
2 T sesame seeds
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1 package ramen noodles, chicken flavored

Option 1:

2 T cider vinegar
1 t pepper
2 T sugar
Packet of Ramen Noodle flavoring

Option 2:

Combine in bowl, toss with dressing about an hour before serving.

A large pretty bowl for serving is a must.
