10.10.10 Recipe Correction

Pig made Pam's chicken slaw and caught my mistake! Apologies on the mess up here! See below (forgot 1/2 cup canola. oil)

Pam Cakes Chicken Slaw
what you need & what i use (and what they tell me to in parenthesis)
the slaw:
package of uncooked chicken flavored ramen noodles
rotisserie chicken
2 green onions
1 package cabbage slaw
1/2 cup silvered almonds
2 tbsp sesame seeds

the dressing: 
1/2 tsp salt (they say: 1 tsp salt but there is a lot of salt in the ramen package below)
1 tsp ground black pepper
the packet that comes in the chicken ramen package
3 tbsp white vinegar
1-1/2 tbsp white sugar (2 tbsp white sugar)
1/2 cup canola oil
what to do:
1. mix all the dressing ingredients together and put aside for later  2. get a pretty good size bowl out and take a fork and get as much white meat as you can off of the rotisserie chicken.  3. dump in the slaw  4. in the baggie still, crunch up the ramen noodles to little pieces and sprinkle on top of the slaw  5. use some kitchen sheers and finely cut cleaned green onions 6. toast the almonds in a pan on the stove and when they are almost toasted, add in the sesame seeds (not too early or they'll burn!) 7. toss the almonds/sesame seeds in with the slaw.  8. pour on the dressing and refrigerate for at least 2 hours--the longer you can leave it the better. 9. serve cold
