    Sue Lau's Note:

    Piquant, spicy, tart and sweet, this is like a bit of sweet/sour kimchee, only Chinese style (numbing peppercorns instead of a chili paste), served at room temperature or chilled. Modified recipe 2/11/13 with a much improved result.

      This was so good that we managed almost the whole thing between the two of us. I like extra spicy flavour from the chili/peppercorn oil. It was the perfect amount both hot and sour, bold but not overpowering. I'll make this again in future. Thanks for sharing!

      Made this to accompany an asian-style chicken recipe. It truly is delicious, not too spicy, either. The flavor of the cabbage is really complimented by the combination of other flavors. I added a garnish of tamari-sesame roasted almonds for extra crunch. Thanks for this one.

      We enjoyed this a lot and it really was a different style to an often boring vegetable
