Oriental Salad

Sorry it has been so long since I put up a post.

I have been so so so so busy. Which is great, because it means I’m having a super awesome summer.

But it is bad because I can’t bake and cook as often as I would like.

And that makes Mikey sad.

He loves when I cook for him. And sometimes I don’t want to and he has to  eat really bad/frozen things.

I’m going to cook something delicious tonight. And hopefully bake too…but this LAME Chicago weather makes me want to curl up on the couch all night…

But for now, I will share this recipe with you.

It’s the easiest.

But, Mikey loves it.

And I wanted to make him smile.

So I made it for him. And he was happy about that.

The easiest part of this salad is that you buy a bag O’ slaw. Easy.

Then you chop up some green onion. 

Add in some sunflower seeds.

And two packages of Ramen. MMMmmmmm college.

This can’t be edible…

Then you throw it all together in a bowl.

After you toss that, you are going to make a dressing.

Combine all this…

And there you have it.

An easy and delicious salad.

It may not be the most impressive…

Actually….it might be the most common potluck/picnic salad of all time…

But it is comforting and brings back many childhood memories of family and friends…and sometimes that is what we crave most!
