Asian Cole Slaw

I just started mixing things together and got a very good outcome.
4 cups cole slaw mix with carrots included
2 T fresh cilantro, chopped
1 orange, peeled, sliced into segments
2 T sesame seeds
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup onion
1/2 cup olive oil (or half olive, half sesame oil)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (rice wine vinegar would be a good substitute)
1/4 cup honey (or agave nectar or other sweetener)
*Optional-but it sure is tasty: 1 handful Sahale Snacks "Sing Buri Cashews". I found these at the 3 Rivers Market. I am sure you can find them at most health food stores or maybe fresh market. They are toasted cashews with pineapple, peanuts, lemongrass and mild chinese chili. They have al sorts of other varieties of nuts that might add a lot of flavor to recipes.
Someone suggested you could also put in ramen noodles (cooked and without the seasoning packet).
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. I am guessing it would serve 4 as a side salad. (But I ate half as a main dish.)
