Expert Tips

Napa—or Chinese—cabbage is also called “hakusai,” “celery cabbage,” “wong bok” and “Peking cabbage.”

To toast sesame seed, cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium heat about 2 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.

If you need to pass on making the dressing, go ahead and use 1/3 cup of a purchased sesame dressing instead.
