Ramen Cabbage Salad

Yes, you can actually serve Ramen noodles to your guests!  My mom made this a lot growing up.  It was always a hit.  I couldn't remember the last time I bought a package of Ramen noodles, but this salad is a good excuse to always have some on hand!

For the salad:
1 medium head cabbage, thinly sliced (you can mix red and green for a more colorful bowl)
3 stalks green onions, thinly sliced
1 package ramen noodles, crumbled (chicken flavor)
1/4 cup slivered or sliced almonds, toasted (5-8 minutes at 350 works for me)
4 Tbsp sunflower seeds

For the dressing:
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
3 Tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
seasoning packet from Ramen noodles (chicken flavor)

Mix all ingredients for the dressing in a container with a tight-fitting lid.  Shake well.  Refrigerate for 2 hours.  (You can serve it right away if you need to, it just loses a bit of the flavor)  Combine cabbage, green onions, and sunflower seeds in a large bowl.  Add noodles and almonds just before you are ready to add dressing (so they don't get soggy).  Pour chilled dressing on top.  Toss well and serve immediately.
