Use any combination of the following vegetables:
Cabbage (red or green)
I prefer to thinly slice the cabbage/kohlrabi and grate the carrot/radish for a total of 3 cups vegetables. (If you are feeding more than just two or three people I recommend doubling or tripling this recipe).
Toss the cut vegetables in a glass bowl with ~4 tablespoons salt. They will be lightly coated and too salty to enjoy eating; let them set for at least 30 minutes
Meanwhile finely chop 2-4 garlic cloves or 5-8 garlic scapes and ½-2 hot chili peppers (or use 1-3 tbsps dried pepper flakes- spice it to whatever you can handle!) and mix with:
1 tablespoon honey or sugar
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1½ tablespoons olive oil
1½ tablespoons toasted sesame oil
Rinse the salted vegetables well with cold water, let them drain, then add to a large bowl. Stir in the garlic/oil mixture, toss well, and let marinate another hour. The longer it sits the better it gets, for at least a couple days.
