Oriental Broccoli Salad

I seem to really have a lack of new recipes this week...we have been eating from the pantry or freezer and sometimes they are already prepared. So with that said, I'm going to share a favorite salad of ours that I make for even gets requested now! I can't remember where I got the recipe from, but its delicious! I also scored a great deal on the broccoli slaw today and picked up a roasted chicken at the store and lunch was served! You can also use shredded cabbage, but I'm not a cabbage fan so I use the broccoli slaw/rainbow salad

Oriental Broccoli Slaw
2 bags broccoli slaw
2 pkg ramen noodles, crushed(toss seasoning)
4 tbsp sunflower seeds
4 oz toasted almonds,chopped/slivered(omitted)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1-2 cooked, chopped chicken breast
1/2 cup olive oil
4 tbsp sugar
6 tbsp rice vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
1/2 tsp each:salt, black pepper, garlic powder

Mix together salad ingredients. Combine dressing ingredients and stir to combine. Pour over salad ingredients and mix well! YUM

**When I made it today it was just broccoli slaw and chicken...I didn't think about getting the noodles when i was at the store as it was a last minute decision. I did add some blueberries to it and it was tasty! I have also made it numerous times without the chicken!
