crunchy chopped salad

This is such a crunchy salad ...your jaws will get a workout!
The original recipe had larger measurements for the sunflower seeds, almonds and ramen...but that made the salad almost like eating trail mix, so I scaled back a bit on those ingredients.

Crunchy Chopped Salad
16 oz. coleslaw mix
6 green onions, sliced
1 head fresh broccoli,
4 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 pkg. ramen noodles
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup oil
1 tsp. soy sauce

In a large bowl, combine coleslaw mix, green onions, and chopped broccoli. Set this in fridge for now.

Melt butter in a non stick skillet. Add almonds and sunflower seeds. Cook and stir until toasted. 

Add crushed ramen noodles and stir to coat.  Set aside to cool.

For the dressing... combine sugar, cider vinegar, oil, soy sauce, and ramen seasoning packet in a jar.  Cover and shake until well blended.

Toss the dressing with the coleslaw mixture. Add crunchy nut mix and toss again.

The salad can be served right away, or you can make it a day ahead and it will still be crunchy.

I was wondering if  some chopped apples would be good a good addition to this salad. I made a note on the recipe to try that next time.
