Napa Cabbage Tips & Recipes

Posted 7/5/2018 5:50am by John and Aimee Good.

Napa Cabbage is a very tender, leafy, juicy cabbage. We LOVE it! Our favorite way to use this long-keeping cabbage (just store loosely in a plastic or green bag), is to make slaw. You can do a traditional version with a mayo or yogurt based dressing, or an Asian-inspired dressing with soy sauce, sesame oil and ginger. Just chop this cabbage finely across the head for slaw. Do not grate or it will become too watery. It is also great in stir-fry, added at the end for a quick, light cooking.

Napa Slaw - 2 ways (Sesame Ginger, Yogurt-Mayo)

1/2 head Napa cabbage, chopped finely across the leaves, into thin strips

2-3 julienned radishes, turnips, and/or carrots

1-2 finely chopped scallions or mini onions

Mix in bowl. Top with dressing of your choice. Serve immediately or chill for a bit and then serve. Serves 4.

DRESSINGS BELOW: Mix dressing ingredients together with a fork in a bowl and pour over veggie mixture. Stir well to thoroughly combine.


3 T. olive oil

1 T. toasted sesame oil

1-2 T. soy sauce (to taste)
