Slaw can be prepared with all green cabbage. Use 1 small head (about 1 lb.)
Slaw can be stored in refrigerator up to 24 hours before serving.
When buying cabbage, look for compact heads that are heavy for their size. Whether red or green, the leaves should be crisp and deeply colored. Check the stem to make sure it has no cracks around its base. Avoid discolored heads of cabbage with wilted outer leaves.
