Asian Slaw down
About 1 ½ years ago I started this blog using software.  I had trouble trying to create the look and fluidity that I wanted within the website.  After a couple of attempts, I put it on the back burner.  Now, after researching and finding software I am once again embarking on this adventure!  I am so excited about blogging and sharing a daily scripture, a favorite recipe, and of course, a few ramblings.

Please join me as often as you can, write comments whenever you are so inclined, and add your email address so you will be notified whenever a new recipe or blog post is published!

Asian slaw
Since it is the beginning of the summer food season I thought I would start with a recipe we just love!  It is a delightful side dish, or you can throw in some cooked chicken and it becomes “dinner!”


Asian Slaw

Asian Slaw

Yield: 12
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes

Asian slaw is a family favorite, a requested recipe from any potluck and a personal favorite of mine. Add some cooked shredded chicken and call it "dinner!"


  • 1 package broccoli cole slaw or regular cole slaw or one head of cabbage chopped
  • 2 packages oriental flavor Ramen noodles, broken up
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 cup carrot straws
  • 2/3 cup sunflower seeds, toasted
  • ½ cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 2 oriental flavor Ramen noodle seasoning packets
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ¼ cup sesame oil
  • ½ cup vegetable oil


In a large bowl, combine slaw and next 4 ingredients, stirring well. Can cover and refrigerate overnight at this point. Or continue making if you are serving the same day.

In a small bowl, combine seasoning packets, sugar, vinegar and soy sauce. Whisk until sugar dissolves. While whisking, gradually add the oils until well combined.

Two hours before serving mix slaw and seasoning. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Serve and enjoy!


My favorite variations:

Add 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken or

Substitute 8 cups spinach for the cole slaw


Romans 8:38-39

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present not the future, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

  1. Hi Catherine…
    I have a favor to ask of you :-). Could you please include what needs to be done differently with the recipes, if you are at 6000 feet altitude?
    Love you, much!

    • What a good idea Toni! Take a look at the information under the new tab, “High Altitude”. When I lived in Denver I adjusted as I went (and didn’t write anything down.) I HIGHLY suggest you try some of the adjustments suggested but write it down 🙂 Thanks for your suggestion!

  2. Cathi, do you have any of Grandma Paulsen’s recipes? I have several of her favorite recipes that are written in her handwriting. I could scan them and e-mail them to you or just type them into a Word document and e-mail them to you. Let me know if you want them. I also have a copy of two journals that she wrote. If you don’t have them, I could mail you a copy. The journals are very sweet and tender, just like she was.

  3. Cathi, this is a beautiful blog. I have always wanted to blog but am not sure that I would have enough to blog about. I love this recipe. Laura makes it a lot and gave the recipe to me several years ago. Thanks for reminding me of it — I need to pull it out because summer is here — finally! Hope you are doing well. I look forward to reading more of what’s going on with me. Love, Jill

    • Jill, great to hear from you! I love following you on facebook, even though I don’t write often – I read a lot! This website has been my dream for some time and I am so excited about it! I hope you will find a recipe or two that are new to you. I know you and Laura both spend quality time in the kitchen and one of these days lets get together and swap some recipes! Now THAT would be fun! Blessings to you and all your family!
