Wombok Cabbage & Mint Salad

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


I love this cabbage; it stores well and is versatile, and I find it 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.
