Dressing Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp neutral oil
  • 3 Tbsp soya sauce (not dark)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ⅛ tsp pepper


  1. Add all dressing ingredients into a jar with a lid.  Shake to combine.
  2. Add all slaw ingredients to a large bowl, add dressing and toss.  You can determine how much dressing to use whether you like it heavily or lightly dressed.

  4. There will be extra dressing which may be stored in the fridge for 1 week.


Napa Cabbage is full of Vitamin C, K, Folic Acid and antioxidants.  I like it because texturally it is similar to lettuce, but has so much more vitamins and minerals.  You could easily add it to a salad to boost up nutritional value.
