Here is a recipe I made this week and remembered just how much I *love* it. I lightened an original to make it healthier and more heart healthy. My older sweet pea is actually eating salad lately and he likes this one a lot.
A great side for a big gathering, or for your family.
1/3 c cider vinegar
¼ c slivered almonds
Combine cider vinegar, sugar, oil, honey and soy sauce in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes and stir.
In a small sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add almonds, sunflower seeds, and noodles to toast, stirring constantly. Once you see the mixture turning golden, remove from heat.
In a very large bowl, add the cabbage, carrots and shallot. About 15-30 minutes before you are ready to serve the salad, toss the dressing and noodle/nut mixture with the cabbage.
Serves 12 (can easily be halved, but in our house, we end up eating it all)
