This salad is very quick to prepare and should be served within 2 hours before it wilts. The flavor has a strong fresh punch and the cabbage is a tender switch from the typical head of cabbage. In a large bowl combine these vegetables:
1 medium head napa cabbage, thinly sliced crosswise
1 bunch green onions, sliced thin crosswise
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
In a small bowl combine:
3/4 cup fresh lime juice (no other substitute!)
1 large jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup olive oil.
Pour dressing over vegetables and gently toss together. Cover and refrigerate. Serve within 2 hours. As an optional flavor, you could also add 1 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 tablespoon fish sauce. It is not necessary though.
