Never Buy Bagged Cabbage Again With This Easy Shredding Hack
Pre-shredded bags of cabbage may be convenient, but they are also more expensive than a head of cabbage. Try shredding your cabbage with a mandoline slicer instead.
A mandolin creates shreds that are super-thin and equally sized. As long as you use a safety guard to protect your fingers, you can easily shred a whole cabbage in a few minutes.
A mandolin slicer also leaves you with little clean up afterward. All you have to wash is a single mandolin rather than an entire processor with its bowl and blade.
Always chill your cabbage in the fridge first to firm up its texture. This simple move will make it easier to create shreds with crisp edges.
