Using a very sharp knife, cut a small slice off one side of rutabaga. Rest rutabaga on the sliced side for stability. Holding rutabaga firmly with a dish towel, cut into several slices using a rocking motion with rutabaga and knife. Peel slices using a potato peeler or sharp paring knife. Chop to desired size.
