Expert Tips

Wasabi peas add crunch and spicy heat to this salad. Look for them in the Asian aisle or the sushi-making area of the supermarket. Or they can be omitted from the salad.

Other types of cabbage can be used in this recipe, but napa’s mild flavor and tender leaves make it ideal for eating raw in salads.
