Saku Saku Dip Salad

Saku Saku Dip Salad

This recipe, while simple, highlights the key characteristics of Saku Saku cabbage: the refreshing, crisp texture and light sweetness of each bite dipped in complementary sauces.

Note that the bite will be different from a typical round cabbage – rather than a dense and chewy texture, Saku Saku has a more delicate tenderness in its thin yet crisp leaves. It is difficult to describe, but this is the perfect recipe to see what we mean. We hope you'll try it and let us know what you think!
