Cutting the mayonnaise brings out the sweet flavor of Napa cabbage and makes this slaw low in fat. Substitute malt vinegar for rice vinegar, if you like.

Cook's Notes

Prep your ingredients a day ahead but wait to dress the slaw until just before serving.

This recipe surprised me – super simple, great flavour. Added some crunch with crispy wontons. Outstanding side salad with ribs!
Rating: 3 stars
Tried this before and after adding the mint and it is definitely better without. I also added some toasted sesame seeds after which was also an improvement. Nice light salad though and a keeper.
