  5. Cut a v-shaped notch into the cabbage half on either side of the core to remove it then cut the cabbage in half again lengthwise.

  7. In another bowl, combine vinegar, mayonnaise, and blue cheese, and mix well.
  8. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add dressing to vegetables, and mix until evenly coated.
