Expert Tips

To julienne the carrots (cut into thin strips), trim the root and stem ends. Slice the carrots lengthwise into thin (about 1/4-inch-thick) planks. Stack the planks and cut them again into long, thin pieces about the thickness of a wooden matchstick. Finally, cut the strips crosswise into pieces about 1 inch long.

Chinese cabbage can replace the red cabbage.
