Tsukemono with Shiso

(adapted from


  • ½ a head of cabbage, chopped into 1” pieces

Order of Operations:

  1. Add the cabbage, shiso leaves and carrots to a gallon ziptop bag.
  2. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. of salt and massage the salt into the vegetables.
  3. Squeeze the air out of the zip top bag and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
