“Julienne” is a French cooking term for thin strips of vegetables (or meat or fruit). The strips are usually about 3 inches long and 1/16- to 1/8-inch thick. To make them, follow these steps:

Peel the vegetable, if necessary, and cut it crosswise into 2-1/2- to 3-inch lengths. If the vegetable is round, cut a thin slice off one side to make a stable base.   How to Cut Julienne Strips
