How To Make purple cabbage raisin cole slaw

    Wash and cut cabbage in half. Remove the core of each half by slicing out a v shaped around the core.

    On a cutting board, lay down the cabbage half, cut side down. Slice the cabbage all the way across and repeat with the 2nd half.

    Remove the top of the carrots and slice off the skin using a vegetable peeler.

    In a food processor, put the chunks of cabbage in and shred them down. Repeat the same for the carrot. If you do not own a food processor, just slice the cabbage very thin and then slice again in the other direction in small pieces.
