Sayonara to boring lunches

After 2 days of turkey sandwiches, 
I'm already bored with making my kids' lunches.

Creativity is always easier for me when there's a theme,
so tomorrow they'll take a little trip to Asia for lunch...

Ramen Salad
makes 8 servings
1 bag (16 oz) of washed and shredded cabbage
3 scallions thinly sliced (both white and green portions)
1/2 of a red bell pepper very thinly sliced

3/4 cup light flavored olive oil
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup sugar

1 cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted
2 bags of ramen noodles crumbled, flavor packed is not used

In a large bowl mix cabbage, scallions and peppers. 
In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar and sugar.
Toss vegetables with dressing, then add in almonds and ramen.  It gets better as it sits so often when I make it for lunch I do this the night before, cover with plastic wrap and keep in refrigerator over night.
