I'm hoping to get some help on a problem i'm having. I have somewhat limited hand dexterity, and want to have finely shredded cabbage for a Japanese salad i've been craving. Reading up on this, lots of people say that hand cutting the cabbage is the only way to go. If this went into a food processor, the texture would be totally different, not what i'm wanting.
I tried using a mandolin slicer last night, with just mediocre results. Just to make it easy to imagine, i'm wanting the texture of the shred to be like that fake plastic Easter grass that's used in baskets at Easter-time. Almost a chiffonade.
My hand cutting that I attempted was not sucessful. Too big cuts, and my hands just coulden't do a good job of it.
