Crunchy Ramen Salad

There are a lot of recipes out there for ramen salad, this one I've chosen as my favorite.

3 Tablespoons butter
1 package (3 oz) Oriental-flavor ramen noodles
2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 bag (16 oz) coleslaw mix

1. Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Stir in seasoning packet from noodles. Break block of noodles into bite-size pieces over skillet; stir noodles into butter mixture. Cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly, stir in sesame seeds. Cook about 2 minutes longer, stirring constantly, until noodles are golden brown.
2. Mix sugar, vinegar, oil and pepper in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and noodle mixture. toss.
8 Servings
Hint: If you're making ahead of time; keep noodles along with dressing in separate zip lock bags or bowls, then toss with remaining ingredients just before serving.
Hint: To toast almonds; heat in a 400 oven for about 4-5 minutes until golden brown. Check often as they will burn quickly.
