Cabbage Ramen Noodle Salad

1 package coleslaw mix
4 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 package Ramen noodles, broken into pieces

dressing:
1/2 cup oil
3 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 Ramen noodle seasoning packet

Combine all ingredients, except for the Ramen noodles, and chill for several hours.

Before serving, add the noodles and mix.

Leila's mom made this for our good-bye cookout at George and Leila's and it was so delicious. Very light and refreshing. A nice alternative to the more traditional, heavier potato salads and noodle casseroles and perfect for hot weather. I made a batch today to have with dinner and I can hardly wait! We are going to go to a nearby neighborhood after dinner that supposedly has awesome views of Aurora to watch the big fireworks display. That way, we figure we won't get stuck in traffic when the show is over so we can get the kids to bed. And by "the kids," I mean Jonny and I, because we have been very tired lately!
