Ramen Coleslaw

My mom makes a variation of this Asian coleslaw, and it's perfect for picnics or camping trips. You can even throw the cabbage and green onions in a big ziplock bag, make the dressing, and combine and toss right before serving. I love the crunch of the almonds and ramen.  After you taste this version, I promise you will not miss the thick mayonnaise based Southern coleslaw.
