Like a typical white chick, I’m Westernizing Asian cuisine with coleslaw and peanut butter. I know, I know, it sounds weird but it’s delicious, I promise. Eat it with chopsticks if it makes you feel better.

– 6 Tbsp. rice wine or white wine vinegar

– 6 Tbsp. canola oil (yes it matters, see *)

– 3 tsp. creamy peanut butter

– 3 Tbsp. mayonnaise

– 2 tsp. chili garlic paste

– 3 Tbsp. soy sauce

– 3 Tbsp. brown sugar

– 1 ½ Tbsp. freshly minced garlic (see *)

– 2 bags of coleslaw mix

– 6 scallions, chopped including about half of the stalk, for color

– 1 pkg. Ramen noodles (flavor doesn’t matter)

– 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil (yes it matters, see *)

Put the first eight ingredients in a mini food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and no lumps remain. Set aside. Remove flavor packet from Ramen. Place noodle packet in a sandwich bag, seal it, and using a rolling pin, beat the hell out of your package of noodles. We don’t want crumbs, just a bunch of small noodle pieces. Heat vegetable oil in frying pan over medium high heat until shimmering. Place noodles in hot oil and fry until just lightly golden. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and place in a sandwich bag, when cool. Combine sauce, scallions, and coleslaw mix in an airtight container, reserving noodles, and refrigerate until ready to serve. I recommend overnight so that the flavors can “fuse.” Right before serving, mix in the noodles. Enjoy!

Be sure to use canola oil as it offers a very neutral flavor base for your dressing. No one wants to taste the oil in your dressing. Use freshly minced garlic for optimal flavor development. Additionally, pre-minced has a lower percentage of actual garlic because other ingredients have been added. Use vegetable oil to fry the noodles because you want to be aware of the oil flavor here.
