  1. This salad looks amazing! I love Napa cabbage, and the Asian favors always change things up a little, in a good way! Thanks for sharing this with Summer Salad Sundays, look forward to seeing you again soon!

  2. Delicious salad. I substituted one tablespoon of butter for sesame seed oil since I did not have any sesame seeds and also added two teaspoons of the sesame seed oil to the salad dressing. It went over quite well with everyone.
