Crunchy Slaw Salad


2017 is here, and let’s face it: Being a college student and finding healthy choices is difficult with all of the unhealthy options out there.

This cheap and easy salad can be eaten as an entrée, appetizer or side.




  • 2 seasoning packets from Chicken Ramen noodles
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1/3 cup of vinegar
  • 1/4 cup of Splenda or sugar


  • 12 oz of Broccoli Slaw
  • 1 apple, cored and chopped
  • 1 cup of sunflower kernels
  • 1 cup of craisins


Make sure to have a large mixing bowl and a smaller bowl. In the small bowl combine the seasoning packets, olive oil, vinegar and a choice of sweetener (Splenda, Stevia, etc.), then mix well. Don’t forget about the noodles from the ramen pack; they will be used later. Set the dressing to the side.

Wash the slaw before use and the apple before cutting. Then, in the large bowl, combine the slaw, apple, sunflower kernels and craisins. Toss to combine. Pour the dressing on the salad (you may not use all of it, so put the rest in a container for another time).

Gently toss the salad until it is evenly coated with the dressing. Before serving, break apart the noodles inside of the packaging, then sprinkle on top of the salad and enjoy.
