1 head fresh broccoli, cut into florets
2 (3 ounce) packages chicken flovoured ramen noodles (Mr. Noodles!)

1 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon soy sauce


1. In a large bowl, toss together the coleslaw mix, green onions and broccoli. Set aside.
2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Crumble the ramen noodles into a bowl, and mix with the almonds and sunflower seeds. Sprinkle the seasoning packets over all. Add to the skillet; cook and stir until noodles and nuts are toasted, about 8 minutes.
3. In a jar (with a tight fitting lid), combine sugar, vinegar, oil and soy sauce. Seal, and shake vigorously to blend.
