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.

This is very similar to an asian-style oil/vinegar coleslaw recipe that I make often. We enjoyed this as a side dish to dinner. For the dressing, I only used 1/4 cup sugar and it was still very good. I also used a mixture of shredded cabbage & romaine, and added in chopped avocado.
