Quick & Easy Pickled Cabbage
This sweet-and-salty quick pickled cabbage is great to have on hand for a topping for sandwiches, hot dogs or brats.
What Type of Cabbage Can I Use?
Both green and red cabbage work well and maintain their crunch after marinating in the pickling liquid that imparts a subtle, spicy flavor thanks to chile peppers.
How to Shred Cabbage
Cut the cabbage in half lengthwise through the stem end.
Next, cut each half in half through the stem end (you should have 4 quarters).
Cut off the bottom of each quarter at an angle to remove the core.
Place a cabbage wedge cut-side down on a cutting board and cut lengthwise into very thin strips. For shorter strips, cut the wedge crosswise.
