Tatsoi cabbage has small, heart-shaped, green leaves that are beautiful in salads. Mizuna, another Japanese green called for in this main-dish salad, has feathery leaves and a peppery flavor. Both are worth seeking out, but if you don’t come across them, simply substitute napa cabbage and watercress.
