Chinese Cabbage Salad

1/2 Chinese Cabbage shredded    

That’s all you need, though you can add a grated carrot, slivered almonds, sliced water chestnuts, thinly sliced scallions…


  • 1Tbsp peanut oil
  • 2 Tbs. sesame oil
  • 2Tbsp rice wine or white wine vinegar
  • 1-2 Tbs. maple syrup
  • 1/2 Tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbs. soy sauce

Pour over salad and toss well.  Refrigerate for 1/2 hour.  Strain the salad over a sauce pan and press down on the cabbage until you have collected all the juices.  Boil the juices down to about 1/4 cup and toss into the salad.


About stillmansfarm

Stillman's Farm® is a family owned farm in Massachusetts. We currently operate at two locations: a greenhouse/retail business in Lunenburg, and the majority of vegetable production in New Braintree. Glenn Stillman started the business in Lunenburg over 20 years ago and now enjoys the promise of the next generation further expanding the very diverse enterprise. The farm also has several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs established in Boston, Lunenburg, Jamaica Plain, Brookline, New Braintree and the Southborough/Framingham area. In addition, the Stillman's trucks have become a fixture at the Boston Area Farmer's Markets. Our Philosophy Most of Stillman's produce is grown without chemicals. For a few crops this simply is not feasible. For these particular crops, we participate in the State Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This entails systematic scouting of fields, protection of beneficial insects, bio-controls, and well-timed applications of only the safest pesticides. With growing concern about genetically modified organisms (GMO), as a patron you can be confident that none of the produce we grow have been engineered, in fact, we often experiment with many heirloom varieties! Conscientiously Grown® The combination of no pesticides, good cultivation management, and IPM practices allows us to offer the widest possible selection of fruit and vegetable varieties and be a thriving sustainable farm. We have developed our own label, "conscientiously grown" to convey our commitment to the safety of our environment, family and customers. All of our hormone free, pasture raised meats carry a conscientiously grown label too!

    I wanted to share a couple of cabbage recipes and wasn’t sure if this is where/how to do it–hope so! One is a classic, easy, creamy recipe in the first Silver Palate book. I’ve adapted it a little, because I don’t think that coleslaw needs cream or corn oil, and I do think it needs a little vinegar. Here’s my adaptation:
    1 regular or 1/2 insanely large green cabbage, tough outer leaves removed, cored, and slivered (that is, once it’s cored, cut it into quarters and then slice each quarter, crosswise, as thin as possible, producing shreds or slivers)
    2 carrots, grated
    1 green bell pepper, sliced thin
    1 cup mayonnaise
    1/2 cup sour cream
    2-3 Tbsp white wine vinegar
    1 tsp caraway seeds
    salt and pepper

    Combine cabbage, carrots, and bell pepper in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix remaining ingredients well. Pour the dressing over the vegetables. It’s nice if you have time to chill it for a few hours before serving, but not crucial.

    Another cabbage recipe I just discovered, perfect if you also belong to the meat CSA and just got some beef stew meat, is a Turkish beef and cabbage stew called etli kapuska. You can find a recipe here:, where I also got a recipe for an excellent roasted eggplant salad!
