Cabbage – what’s cheaper?

What is cheaper? The slaw mix or the entire head of cabbage and shredding it yourself?

This was a question I encountered recently when I was planning to make fish tacos.  (If you have access to fresh fish, this is a way to prepare the fish without drowning it in grease by breading and deep fat frying!). I discovered I could pay $ .22 per cup for the prepackaged cabbage slaw, or just $ .11 per cup if I shredded it myself – half the price! That’s pretty impressive. But whether you use the slaw mix or the whole head, either is an inexpensive source of nutrient rich vegetable.
