Quite good. Don't shred Napa cabbage in your food processor with the shredding disk-it vaporizes it. I will use a box grater or knife next time. Really easy and nice flavor. Not as good without the peanuts. It might benefit from some serrano chiles or hot pepper flakes too.

Good recipe, but in the future I will use more basil and less mint (or maybe no mint at all). I made it with more mint than basil, and the mint somewhat overpowered the more delicate flavor elements.

Delicious & easy to make! Wish my kids liked it more, though :)

Definitely a recipe I will make on a regular basis, rotating ingredients with what is on hand. The only change from the recipe is that I would add some heat, with red pepper in the dressing or tossing in a fresh hot pepper. It's good chopping practice too.

I've eaten this dish many times in Vietnamese restaurants and always wondered how to make the sauce. It's great with napa because it doesn't get soggy as fast as lettuce. The only problem is that I want to keep eating it even after I'm not hungry any more.
