Directions Step-By-Step

1
Discard the outer leaves of cabbages. Cut heads in quarters; remove and discard cores. Slice cabbage thinly or shred in a food processor. Layer the cabbage in a large bowl with the sea salt. Toss to distribute salt evenly and let cabbage sit for 1 hour to soften.
2
Meanwhile, peel the carrots and grate them into thin shreds.
3
Drain off any liquid produced by the cabbage and rinse the cabbage well in several changes of cold water to remove excess salt. Taste the cabbage; if it is still too salty, rinse it again.
4
Add carrots to the cabbage and mix well.
5
Whisk the rice vinegar, brown sugar and sesame oil together in a small bowl.
6
Pour the dressing over the cabbage and mix well. Let chill. Garnish with minced scallions and toasted sesame seeds before serving.
