Notes

Get your kids involved! They can: mix together kimchi slaw, mix together spicy mayo, build their own tacos.

Kimchi: is a fermented cabbage like sauerkraut. It is typically found in the refrigerated section near the tofu. If your kimchi doesn’t have a lot of liquid, use a tablespoon of soy sauce in the slaw.

Younger kids: tacos can be tough, so serve the components separately!
