Wombok Cabbage & Mint Salad

Wombok in Australia, Napa cabbage in the US, Chinese cabbage the world over!  A member of the brassica family that’s popular in Asian style cuisines the leaves are lighter, more delicate and less waxy than the average cabbage with a crisp, mild and slightly sweet flavour eaten both raw and cooked.   


I love this cabbage, it stores well, is versatile and I find that it is a little easier for people to digest than some other cabbages.    Mint is a culinary herb with medicinal properties.  Mint is stimulating, aids digestion and has anti-inflammatory nutrient properties.
