Napa Cabbage Salad With a Crunch

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chef Buggsy Mate

A nice refreshing salad for the summer. I do not care for coleslaw but this salad is wonderful. It does not have the heavy mayo base. The dressing also works wonderfully on a tossed green salad or steamed veggies.

When I clicked on the highlighted 'napa cabbage' it went to google & showed a cabbage that we in the UK know as 'Chinese Leaves' - great, at least I was familiar with it! A very tasty salad that my daughter served with 'Chicken Teriyaki with Cashew Pineapple Rice' from this site (where I also cooked other things). Chinese friends said it wasn't typically Chinese but would take the recipe home to family.
