1 medium head cabbage
1 medium head mustard cabbage
1/4 cup Hawaiian salt
2 T roasted sesame seed
Ajinomoto (or not)

Sauce:      1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar

chili pepper to taste

Chop vegetables to 1/2” size.  Put in large container, sprinkle salt and mix well.  Leave for 30 minutes.  Squeeze out excess water, add roasted (in pan) sesame seeds and ajinomoto (or not).
