Summer Salad - Broccoli Slaw

Earlier this Summer I was visiting my cousin Kathy in Virginia. She served this delicious broccoli salad as part of her lunch buffet. It could easily be the main course for a summertime luncheon. It does just fine on its own but if you wanted a bit more substance,you could add some diced cooked chicken. Serve it with a basket of rolls and butter, add a tall glass of iced tea, and you're done!

BROCCOLI SLAW
16 ounce bag of broccoli slaw (near the bags of lettuce)
1 cup toasted slivered almonds
4 oz sunflower seeds
4 scallions, sliced
1 package ramen noodles, crushed (save the seasoning packet for another time)

Dressing
4 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
4 TBSP rice wine vinegar
4 TBSP salad oil
2-3 TBSP sesame oil
2-3 TBSP soy sauce
Combine dressing ingredients.
Toss with the rest of ingredients shortly before serving.
