Oriental Slaw

I think this slaw recipe is a staple at a lot of parties and I always really like it. I love the crunch that the ramen noodles give the salad too. I bought these Asian beef skewers at Super Target the other day and I was trying to figure out something to go with them. I thought the Oriental slaw would be a good side dish that would pair well with the beef skewers.

I changed a couple of things to the original recipe. I added sesame oil, soy sauce and sunflower seeds. I really love the flavor of sesame oil. The only thing I would change would be to put in a little less vinegar. I thought the vinegar flavor was a little too strong in the dish. Other than than Phil and I really enjoyed the slaw.
