Napa cabbage, with its long crinkled leaves, is more delicate in flavor than green or red cabbage.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, zest and juice of the lime, vinegar, soy sauce, and chili oil. Season with salt; set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, toss together the cabbage, pepper slices, scallions, daikon, snow peas, and chives. Pour the dressing over the slaw, toss to combine, and serve.

Cook's Notes

Rice-wine vinegar and hot chili oil are available in the Asian section of most supermarkets; white radish may be substituted, if daikon is unavailable.

The vegetable combination worked fine. However, 1/4 CUP of hot chili oil made too much heat for my guests. The second time I made it I used 1 tablespoon of the hot chili oil and 3 T of sesame oil. That was still hot-ish. The next time I make this I'm going to use only 1/2 tablespoon of the hot chili oil and compensate with another bland oil to maintain the volume. Please reconsider that amount for the hot chili oil.
