How Do You Cut Cabbage For Coleslaw?
Start by removing the loose out leaves from the head of cabbage.
Cut head of cabbage in half.
Locate the core of the cabbage. It will be hard and solid.
Remove the core but cutting out a wedge shape from the head of cabbage.
Lay flat side against your cutting board and cut straight down, in quarter inch sections.
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.
How long does homemade coleslaw last in the fridge?
You can safely make coleslaw three to four days ahead of serving it, but you may not be happy with the quality. Coleslaw should be made ahead and refrigerated to meld the flavors, but if you make it more than 24 hours ahead, it becomes watery and limp.
Not only is it delicious served alongside other dishes, but coleslaw also makes a delicious topping on all kinds of sandwiches - like fish sandwiches and pulled pork sandwiches. Coleslaw is also delicious on tacos.
