Recipe Notes

How Do You Cut Cabbage For Coleslaw?

  1. Start by removing the loose out leaves from the head of cabbage.
  2. Cut head of cabbage in half.
  3. Locate the core of the cabbage.  It will be hard and solid.
  4. Remove the core but cutting out a wedge shape from the head of cabbage.
  5. Lay flat side against your cutting board and cut straight down, in quarter inch sections.
  6. When the end of cabbage becomes too difficult to cut, rotate so that the largest flat side is against cutting board, and cut quarter inch sections the opposite way.
