How to Make Coleslaw

Neither of us had made coleslaw, but we had this easy recipe on hand and we cut it in half to see how it would turn out.  It was easy and delicious!  The most difficult part was slicing the cabbage.  We only needed half of a medium head of cabbage, so he just started cutting thin strips of cabbage with a large knife like this.  He quickly figured out how to make the size of the pieces that he wanted to eat.  He did the same thing with the other vegetables.  If you don’t know how to shred or chop vegetables don’t worry about it, just be safe with the knife by always cutting away from yourself and keep your fingers out of the way!  Cut pieces that you think you would enjoy.  I’ve also noticed that the more he’s chopped vegetables the better he has gotten!
