What’s Cookin’ : Oriental Hot Slaw

I went to the grocery store every day last week. Treacherous. I always seemed to forget something or get so frustrated by my inability to find a key ingredient that I stormed out with nothing in hand. I drove all over town looking for the ingredients for this recipe. When trips to 5, yes 5 grocery stores yielded no results for illusive hot chili oil, I phoned a friend. That is how bad I wanted to make this salad. I got this recipe from a co-worker and sent her a desperate text asking to borrow her hot chili oil.

This salad is amazing, a great side to a boring lunch or a lunch all on it’s own. The ingredients are an investment, just telling you now. But they will likely last for several batches. and really, who does not love a recipe that includes Ramen Noodles? I know many friends that were introduced to this delicacy in college, Ramen Noodles and I go way back to the days when I would call it curly soup.
