Oriental Coleslaw

We first had this salad at a Rose of Sharon potluck and it has been a potluck favorite ever since. It is the only way I can get my guys to even look at cabbage. I've had several variations on this recipe, but Sherry Purkeypile's is still the BEST!
1 bag coleslaw
3-4 sliced green onions
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 bag crushed ramen noodles, dry (discard seasoning packet)
1/4 cup butter

Toast sesame seeds and almonds in dry fry pan until lightly golden brown. (be careful, they burn easily) Melt butter in pan and fry noodles until golden brown. Let cool to room temperature on paper towel-lined plate.

Mix together 1 cup sugar, 1 cup vegetable oil, 1/2 cup white vinegar and 2 Tbsp soy sauce with wire whisk.

Combine all salad ingredients and toss with dressing just before serving. (it will become soggy if it sits too long)
