The classic Julienne Method
- Wash your produce and peel. Cut into 2 to 3-inch lengths.
- Cut a thin slice off one side to make a stable base. Place the flat side down, and slice into uniform planks.
- Slice produce about 1/16 to 1/8-inch across.
Stack a few planks at a time and slice them into 1/16- to 1/8-inch-thick strips (the same width as the slabs).
