This cold dish is wonderfully refreshing: its crisp texture is well matched by a cool, aromatic flavor.


  • 4 cups (loosely packed) shredded celery cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded white radishes or icicle turnips (white Chinese turnips)


Remove the cabbage’s tough outer leaves and shred the inner leaves by stacking them and cutting closely crosswise. Cut off the ends of the radishes and slice lengthwise; then shred the slices. If you are using icicle turnips, peel them first.

Put the vegetables in a large bowl, add the salt and ground peppercorns, and toss well with your hands. Cover and refrige
