1/2 Red Onion
2 Carrots
1 1/4 – 1 1/2 Napa Cabbage
1/4 Kosher Salt
5 -6 Sea Salt
1 Garlic
1 -3 Fresh Ginger
2 Hot Chili Sauce
3 Sugar
2 Rice Vinegar
Canola Oil


In large bowl, combine the red onion, carrots, cabbage, and salt. Add just enough water to cover the vegetables.
Let them sit at room temperature overnight. The next day, drain the vegetables.
Add the remaining ingredients, and toss well.
Chill the salad for at least 1 hour before serving.
It will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
Variation: This kimchi doesn’t undergo a fermenting process, as real kimchi does.
If you’d like to ferment this kimchi, omit the oil, and put the mixture into a large sterilized jar.,
Let the kimchi stand at room temperature for 2-4 days, opening the jar once a day to let out the gases that build up.
Store the kimchi in the refrigerator after this period.
It will keep for several weeks.
