I love this recipe and can't ger enough even though my family can live without it. I did have to reduce the light soy sauce to 1/8 cup.

I did not particularly like this recipe. I had halved the liquid because I had only half a cabbage and it wasn't that great...still a bit too much liquid. I felt there was too much soy sauce. I think it might be good with the Balsamic Vinegar and olive oil and just a drizzle of soy but that's probably a personal taste preference. I love raw cabbage and I thought it tasted better raw then this recipe/combination. I might try it again but use less soy and see if that makes a difference for us. Thanks!

So Simple but so tasty. I add a lil Sesame Oil, it gives it a great flavor.

My boyfriend and I love this recipe. All the measurements are perfect, and we add a little sesame oil as another reviewer suggested. We like to steam the cabbage slightly before tossing.

I thought that this was a very tasty recipe for cabbage. In future I might use rice wine vinegar instead of balsamic, but I think the recipe works very well as is.

I loved this as is and then added a couple of dashes of habanero hot sauce to kick it up - I will keep making this with the hot sauce.

Excellent and easy recipe. I did add some salt, ground black pepper and cumin seeds. Served with fish, we all had seconds of this salad.
