Red Bag Salad

Previously called the Sunshine Salad, this coleslaw type salad deserves to be made in bulk. As a result of the mass quantities it makes, the easiest way to mix the ingredients together is by combining them in a red Sendik’s bag, hence the name change. I’m getting ahead of myself, though. This salad is perfect for a potluck party, Salad Monday’s at the office (or school, as the case may be), or the Sunday night Packer game. Keep in mind, this recipe makes a ton of food. You will make friends by sharing this.

Dressing Ingredients
NOTE: These measurements are rough. I usually start with this and more to taste.
6 tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients together.  It works well to use a glass jar and shake all of the ingredients together. The dressing lasts about a week in the refrigerator.

Salad Ingredients
1 small head lettuce
1 small head red cabbage
1 small head green cabbage
1-2 diced red peppers
1-2 packages of ramen noodles
slivered almonds
sunflower seeds
cherry tomatoes

Chop the lettuce, red cabbage, and green cabbage. Put the ramen noodles in a Ziploc bag and crunch them into small pieces. Combine all ingredients in a red Sendik’s bag. Toss well.

Top your salad with the dressing and ramen pieces. Enjoy!
