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.
  • *To toast sesame seed, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
