Chelley Jensen's Noodle Slaw

Spread 2 packages beef ramen noodles, broken into small pieces, (seasoning packets set aside) & 1/2 C. Slivered almonds on a cookie sheet & bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool completely. Take 1 package coleslaw mix & 1 bunch green onions sliced small & mix together. Make dressing by mixing together 1/2 C. Vegetable oil, 2 T. Soy sauce, 2 T. Vinegar, 1/4 C. Sugar & both the ramen seasoning packets. Right before serving, combine noodles, salad, & dressing. Enjoy:) I usually add another 1/2-1 full bag of coleslaw to stretch it depending on how big my bowl is, without having to increase any of the other ingredients.
