There is an error in the 12 pounds of cabbage. 1-pound of cabbage is about 4 to 5 cups of raw shredded cabbage. This recipe is about 45 cups of cabbage. Which is one cup servings. Usually a 1/2 cup serving is ample. I would say this recipe serves 100 people. Loved the dressing. A medium cabbage weighs 2 to 2.5 pound. So 2 medium heads of cabbage is sufficient.
