Chinese Cabbage Salad

From Asparagus to Zucchini, a guide to farm fresh, seasonal produce

We never tire of this farm favorite with its addictive dressing. And it can easily be transformed into a yummy bok choy salad also.

5 cups shaved Chinese Cabbage              2 TBSP rice vinegar

¾ cup sliced or shredded radish                        4 TBSP sesame oil

1 ½ cups chow mein noodles                             3 TBSP soy sauce

   (the crunchy ones)                                             1 TBSP honey

1 cup crushed peanuts                                         ½ to 1 tsp dry mustard

¼ cup sesame seeds                                                                


Combine cabbage, radish, chow mein noodles, peanuts, and sesame seeds in a large bowl. Mix remaining ingredients and toss with the cabbage a little at a time. Mix in just enough dressing to suit your taste. 6-8 servings. (*Note: we like to mix the veggies together and then add the nuts and dressing as we eat the salad−this keeps the toppings crunchy and the cabbage fresh for leftovers.)
