I first posted a version  of this twenty years ago on ‘Zaar. This one is much improved. And it’s a good thing when  it has 20+ years of tweaks to refine the recipe.

Which goes to show that anything I posted back then-  you should always check with me here first to see if the recipe has gotten any  better. Not  to mention  any  typos  or  bugs  on the  old sites- in some cases it has gone so far as to change the recipe  name on me  without asking. And I have no idea who goes in and makes edits to recipes that are not theirs. But anyhoo.

A type of this pickle/slaw used to be  put out on the tables when you arrived at restaurants to eat, as hospitality. Other places  might  put out bowls of wonton  strips. I like both,  but I love the  fresh cabbage  pickle the best.

It’s sort of like a Chinese kimchi,  not that I am  an authority on the origins  of foods. And  maybe or maybe not this is exactly how they made  it  but this is the best as far as I have been toying with it.

Enjoy.  It’s pretty healthy as far as it goes. I have made with a sugar sub before. But you know  how those make recipes suffer. Do what you gotta’ do and enjoy sugar if you can. And try not to eat the whole  order/recipe all by yourself. Even before it gets to the table. It’s addictive, if nothing else.
