Crab Sticks Salad with Napa and Cucumber

It is time for summer cookouts yet? I bet it is! Who said cookouts should be all meat and bread – add a bit of vegetables and crab sticks 🙂

Napa gives this salad tender filling; however you can substitute white cabbage for napa – it will work fine, just remember to tenderize shredded cabbage with your hands.

If you use frozen crab sticks, make sure they unfreeze completely and all extra liquid is removed before adding them to the salad.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: boil eggs hard, drain liquid from corn, clean and rinse greens and vegetables, english cucumber can be replaced by any other cucumber type of similar size:

  2. Start of by shredding napa (I used about 5-6 leaves, but depending on the size add more if needed). Put shredded cabbage to the big salad bowl, season with salt and set aside (if you substitute white cabbage for napa – soften it a bit with your hands before continuing):

Can you substitute bologna or ham for the crab sticks?
