  1. Cut cabbage in half, remove the core, and then cut into quarters. Finely shred the quarters, and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Heat the vinegar to boiling in a small saucepan. Pour the vinegar over the shredded cabbage and toss to mix so it's thoroughly coated.
  3. Pour the boiling water over the cabbage and let it stand until slightly softened, about 3-4 minutes. Drain thoroughly in a colander, then return it to the large bowl.
  4. Toss the cabbage with enough vinaigrette to moisten well.Taste for seasonings and add more vinegar, if needed. Cover the bowl and marinate the cabbage in the dressing 1-2 hours. The cabbage will turn a pinkish color.
