Napa Cabbage Salad with Watermelon Radishes and Apples


Jake Des Voignes, Local: Mission Eatery

Serves 2 or 3


3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
4 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and black pepper, to taste
1 small head Napa cabbage, thinly sliced across the rib
2 watermelon radishes, thinly sliced
½ pomegranate, seeded
½ bunch mint, torn
2 Fuji apples, cored and thinly sliced
¼ cup grated hard goat cheese (such as Capricious)


1.    In a measuring cup or small bowl, mix the vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

2.    In a large bowl, mix the cabbage, radishes, pomegranate seeds, mint, and apples. Cut the apples last to avoid browning.

3.    Pour the dressing over the salad and mix well. Taste, adjust the seasoning, and serve immediately. Top each serving with grated cheese.
