Spicy Cabbage Kimchi
Great kimchi! I brine cure the cabbage and rinse once. That gets the salt just right. I also use chili caribe vs. Korean chili because that is what I have on hand. I make two batches a year. I pack it in pint jars after the stormy ferment and LIGHTLY seal the lids. It will last months in the fridge that way.

Hot German Potato Salad III
Great! It has been decades ago, but just like grandmother used to make. Only substitution was GF flour for wheat flour.

Avocado-Orange Salad Dressing
Rating based on as written recipe. The success of any recipe depends on the quality of ingredients. This one deserves the best avocado you can find and a nice, full flavored orange - so add "seeded" to the orange prep. I thought the ginger might be a bit much, but it wasn't. My tweaks will be to start with 1/4 c water and add more as desired. Also, will spice up a bit with a fermented chili sauce, depending on use. For us omnivores, this should also work with a grilled chicken taco. I'll try that this evening. (edit) And it did.
