Funny red cabbage

Well maybe funny is not the right word but there is something odd about red cabbage. I totally love it, but I don’t often cook it. When I do decide to cook it (such as in this delicious red cabbage, chestnut and apple version), I hate it when it hasn’t cooked long enough. It needs to be soft and delicious and not chewy.

However, when I decide to have a cabbage slaw I kind of like that chewiness. That’s slightly weird right? One thing to keep in mind if you’re using raw red cabbage in your salad is that you need to either grate it or cut it very fine.

If the chunks are too big, the cabbage becomes too hard to eat. Or so that is my opinion. I like it finely cut.


You can buy ready grated red cabbage in the supermarket but it makes more sense to buy a whole red cabbage. If you make this red cabbage and carrot slaw, you probably only need about a quarter of the whole cabbage. Which leaves you to use the remaining red cabbage for another dish, like the Asian salad or any other salad of your choosing.
