Shredding cabbage?

Is there an easier way to shred cabbage for cole slaw? I have a food processor and was wondering if it would do the trick for me and speed up things up for dinner tonight.

When I worked in a deli we used a meat slicer, worked great!

I just cut it in half and thinly slice... it takes only a minute or two.

Usually I go with pdswife's approach.

It is easier for me to use the knife for a minute or two than have to clean the whizzer.

Or if I want the stuff a bit thinner will go with a box grater.

Just my take, God bless.

The grater would be easy too. Hadn't thought of that.

Any more, I usually buy the pre-chopped slaw mix...but when I do make it from scratch, I just do it with a knife. As pdswife says, it only takes a few minutes, and is a lot easier than cleaning up the food processor.
Thing about the slaw mix is that it already has some shredded red cabbage and grated carrots...it's actually cheaper to buy that than all the stuff to make it.

Our one and only grocery store (SuperWalmart) is now offering broccislaw. Have any of you, by chance, tried that?

I don't eat all that much cabbage, but when I'm craving a cole slaw I tend to chop my cabbage in the food processor

I use mandolin, it's easy, it's perfect cut, it's very fast, it's easy to clean.

Ditto what Charlie said. The mandoline is the best bet for cabbage in my book.
