Simple and inviting with a little sweetness, this Crunchy Napa Cabbage Salad is one of our regulars this time of year.
I’ve been meaning to share this salad recipe with you for quite some time. It’s the salad we make more often than any other.
We call this addictively Crunchy Napa Cabbage Salad Carson’s Salad, because my son Carson (age 10) asks for it nearly every week.
He loves the crisp texture of the napa cabbage with the sweet silky mangoes. Sprinkle toasted nutty goodness and green onions over the top and you have a simple salad kids crave!
I toss this crunchy napa cabbage salad with a perky vinaigrette that is just as easy to make.
It’s a blend of mild rice vinegar, oil, honey, plus a little sesame oil for flavor. Light and zippy… the perfect complement to this crisp cool salad.
No wonder Carson asks for it so often.
Of course, I’m always happy to oblige a child begging for salad. I try to keep napa cabbage and mangoes on hand, all the time. He even makes this crunchy napa cabbage salad for himself sometimes.
On occasion, we throw in cool cucumber slices and a little sriracha hot sauce in the dressing just to kick things up.
When my children are in the kitchen, I’m always thankful for my kid-friendly crack resistent dinnerware from Q Squared NYC. They can carry around the melamine Diamond White Bowls and our Q Zen Serving Bowl without concern.
