Learn how to cut cabbage to add flavor and crunch to your favorite dishes, like tacos, soups, and stir-fries. Whether you want to slice cabbage for coleslaw, or shred cabbage for egg rolls, I will show you the best methods to get the best results.
Remove the outer wilted leaves of your cabbage (usually 2-3 whole leaves). After cutting or shredding your cabbage, you can give it a quick rinse under water or place it in a salad spinner to remove any bacteria. Pat it dry before using.
Place the halves cut side down, and cut each half into two pieces (from top to bottom), giving you four quarters. You can take it one step further and cut the quarters into eighths for eight total wedges.
If using a knife, place the wedges cut side down on the cutting board. Starting at the top of the cabbage, cut crosswise from top to bottom into thin slices.
