Ramen Salad

This quick and simple salad is fun to toss together
for a quick lunch or a last minute get together.

1 lb Cole Slaw (I just buy the 1 lb bag for simplicity)

2 pkg. Ramen (oriental or shrimp flavor)
1/4 cup Margarine
1/3 cup Slivered Almonds

1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup Red Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup Sugar
Seasoning packets from the Ramen noodles

Optional: I always add more carrots (julienned or sliced) and chopped chicken when I want to make it more of a meal and not a side salad.

Break noodles; saute with almonds in margarine until lightly browned. (As a note if you crush your noodles to much then you will have smaller pieces that with brown or burn before the larger pieces are browned--you will have to play with it to get a method down that you like.)
Combine oil, vinegar, sugar and Ramen seasonings in a small bowl and set aside.
Mix all ingredients when ready to serve.
