Sui Choy and Epictetus

After making potstickers last week I had head of sui choy in the fridge that I didn't quite know what to do with. Google to the rescue - I love the internets!

Sui Choy (Napa Cabbage) Salad

1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar [I think 1/3 or less would do]
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tblsp soya sauce

Crunchy Bits:
1 cup slivered almonds
1 package instant noodles (toss the flavour packet)
1/8 cup sesame seeds

One head Sui Choy (Napa cabbage)

Bring dressing to a boil and then let it cool. Make sure sugar is dissolved.

In a seperate pan, place all the crunchy bits. On medium heat, move them around in the pan unitl they are toasted. Remove, and cool.

Chop up the siu choy thinly and put in a big bowl.

Stir in the sauce, then the crunchy bits..refrigerate and then eat.

Number of Servings: 6

On a different note, I'm reading Epictetus' "Discourses" and came across a quote that seems apt for this time of year:

We must endure a winter training, and can't be dashing into situations for which we aren't yet prepared.
