Quick Tip

Green cabbage
To shred a head of cabbage, cut it in half, slicing through the stem, then into quarters. Cut out each piece of the core and discard. Shred the leaves in a food processor or on a box grater. Tightly wrapped, a leftover half or quarter of cabbage will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
