If you love Kimchi but think it's too much work then this might be the perfect recipe for you. It's an easy slaw that uses the flavors of kimchi mixed with an easy bagged cole slaw mix so you can throw this together in minutes.
And once you've got a batch in the fridge the ideas are endless. It's great on burgers and sandwiches but it's also great as an ingredient in other recipes. I like to mix it with an egg and make kimchi fritters. It's great in fried rice or soup.
If I've got a bowl of this in the fridge your meals will be interesting all week.
