This recipe concreted my opinion that I am not a fan of cilantro. I would have given this a lower rating, but I think most of my gripe is with I just can't make myself like that herb. I won't make again.

Make this semi-involved recipe much faster by using the food processor's shredder attachment to shred the cabbage. Omit the fish sauce if you don't care for its flavor.
