Peanut Chinese Cabbage Salad (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

I love a fresh, crisp salad featuring Chinese cabbage. This Peanut Chinese Cabbage Salad is the perfect accompaniment for sandwiches, curry dishes, and stews. Plus, it stores well for a few days. Take it along on your next picnic or potluck and watch it disappear!
