I go nuts over this cabbage in the Paris delis. Red cabbage is very good you you and this keeps 2 weeks in my fridge with no problem. The crunch is still there! Use all organic ingredients if possible. A terrific side dish to an omelette or sandwich.
Pickles are a big part of Japanese dining. Small dishes of vegetables like daikon, carrots, etc are usually part of a meal. My friend's mother makes this at home and keeps a long time! I use it as a side to my sandwich lunch!
