Since we were having something that was just sinful like the fried tilapia, I didn’t really want to fry potatoes to go with it, but I didn’t think a plain ol’ salad would pair well with it either. So Jade and I decided to try out this recipe from, believe it or not, the package of Ramen noodles that is a staple at our house. It was actually pretty good, it provided the crunch to go with the fish, but not too heavy or too sweet like regular coleslaw.
4 cups finely shredded cabbage
3 tablespoons toasted sunflower seeds
1 package chicken flavored Ramen Noodles (broken or crushed)
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1 Ramen seasoning packet
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 teaspoon chopped cilantro
Combine cabbage, broken noodles, and sunflower seeds. Whisk dressing ingredients, adjust seasoning as necessary, and toss with cabbage mixture just before serving.
