Broccoli Crunch Salad

I made this yesterday to bring to a Memorial Day BBQ. It's a great alternative to your everyday salad, and it's super yummy too. This salad has three main ingredients: broccoli, cabbage and carrots. This simple salad packs a super nutritious punch. Broccoli is an excellent source of vitamin C, folate and fiber. It's also a great source of antioxidants. Red cabbage is a super nutritious food that contains disease-fighting properties that offer antioxidants and anti-cancer benefits. Red cabbage is also a great source of fiber and vitamin A. Carrots are also a great source of beta carotene and vitamin A. You can serve this as a yummy lunch or a side dish with dinner. This is for older kids (like 4+ years) and adults. Enjoy!

Here's what you need: Serves 4 to 6
For the dressing:
2 pkgs beef flavored seasoning from the Ramen noodles
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup white wine vinegar

Mix together in food processor do not add dressing to salad until ready to serve (the salad will get soggy if you add too soon)

Salad ingredients:
5 organic heads of fresh broccoli cut into florets
1/2 head of red cabbage chopped
2 cups thinly sliced organic carrots
1/4 cup chopped scallions
2 pkgs ramen noodles crunched
1 cup sliced almonds

Mix together in a large salad bowl and add dressing when ready to serve and mix again. Serve and enjoy!
