What Type of Cabbage Is Best for Salad?

We use green cabbage for this salad, which is the most common variety of cabbage. Green cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable that’s versatile, inexpensive and boasts many health benefits. Green cabbage is round and compact with tightly packed smooth leaves, light green in color with a mild flavor. Feel free to mix in other types of cabbage in the salad, like red cabbage, napa cabbage or savoy cabbage for a variety of color and texture.

How to Cut Cabbage for Salad

In a pinch, you can use packaged shredded cabbage for this salad, but we recommend prepping it yourself. Here’s how to do it:

Carolyn Hodges

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.

Carolyn Hodges

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.
