Asian-inspired Broccoli Slaw

This one comes from one of my favorite shows on the Food Network - Paula's Home Cooking. (I love her Southern drawl!) I've adapted the recipe to make it a little more 'Asian' and easier to make, but if you want to see the original, click here. If you can't find shredded Broccoli slaw at your local grocery store, feel free to substitute Cole slaw. I like to serve this salad the same day I make it, when it's still nice and crunchy.

1 package broccoli slaw
1 package kosher Ramen-type soup noodles and
seasonings packet (any flavor)
3 green onions, finely diced (or chives or scallions)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds and/or slivered almonds
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
3 Tbsp. rice vinegar
3 Tbsp. sesame oil
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds

Crush noodles in a Ziploc bag with a rolling pan.
Combine all ingredients in one big mixing bowl. Toss until broccoli is well coated.
Serve! (Your salad will be a little bit darker than shown in the picture)
