Broccoli Slaw

This recipe was first introduced to me by my Aunt Cheryl.  I absolutely love the fresh and crunchy texture of this slaw.  I have to admit I made this for dinner last night, but we ate it all before I remembered to take a picture.  I'm sure I'll be making it soon and update with a picture.

1/4 C. Oil
2 t. Soy sauce
1/3 - 1/2 C. Sugar
1/2 C. Vinegar
1 t. Sesame oil (if you have it)
5 green onions (including stems)
1 package broccoli slaw
3/4 C. Rice noodles (Chow Mein noodles)
3/4 C. Cashews
1/2 C. Sunflower seeds

Whisk together the first group of ingredients, until a dressing forms. Add in second group of ingredients and toss until well coated.  Refrigerate for 2-3 hours to marinate and chill before serving.

Note:  I made this for dinner and didn't get home in time to let it marinate for longer than 45 minutes to an hour.  It still turned out quite well, but had a little extra crunch.
