1/2 head green cabbage
1.5 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons sautéed onions or raw scallions
1.5 teaspoon crunchy garlic
1.5 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
.5 teaspoon black pepper
.25 teaspoon MSG
Quarter, core, and cut cabbage into fine ribbons. In a large bowl massage salt into cabbage for two minutes and let rest for ten. Meanwhile, prep dressing.
Toss all other ingredients together and taste. You’re looking for a bright, complex flavor. Ginger, miso, citrus zest, and other vinegars are also options for other flavors.
Drain any excess water from cabbage. Toss cabbage and dressing together and serve.
