This fresh and flavorful cabbage salad is quite addictive! Napa cabbage is much lighter with a milder flavor compared to green or red cabbage. If you are wanting to consume more raw vegetables, try adding napa cabbage into your diet. Serve this salad with sautéed tempeh, grilled chicken, or grilled steak. If you can't find Thai basil, use sweet basil, holy basil, lemon basil, or purple basil. I like to use a mandoline to quickly and thinly sliced the cucumbers. I highly recommend this inexpensive kitchen tool!
