Broccoli Slaw Salad

I got this recipe from the Food Network, and it's quickly becoming a favorite at family parties. This recipe makes enough for about 15 people, so just cut everything in half if you're serving fewer.

2 3-oz. bags Oriental flavor ramen
5-6 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup slivered almonds
2 12-oz. bags broccoli cole slaw (in produce section at grocery store near pre-chopped veggies and packaged salad mixes)
1 cup chopped green onions
sesame seeds for garnish

3/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Oriental ramen seasoning packets
1/8 tsp. pepper

Melt butter in a medium skillet over low to medium heat. Crush ramen noodles into small bite-size pieces (a rolling pin and a Ziploc work well). Saute almonds and crushed noodles until golden brown; remove from heat. Meanwhile, whisk dressing ingredients together. In a large salad bowl, combine broccoli cole slaw mix, green onions, and the almond/noodle mixture. Right before serving, pour dressing over the top and toss to coat. Garnish with sesame seeds.
