This is my first time using Napa cabbage and I’m going to admit, not without some shame, that for a long time I thought it was just another type of lettuce.
Now that I’ve done some experimenting, I can tell you that Napa cabbage makes great salads. It is especially perfect for shredding and has a sweeter taste and more delicate texture than regular cabbage.
Paired with strawberries and dressed in nutty argan oil and apple cider vinegar, it is delightfully fruity or maybe fruitily delightful? Either way, it’s great on a summer day.
