Cilantro Lime, Red Cabbage Slaw

October 16, 2017

 

If you're not enjoying red cabbage on a regular basis, I encourage you to!  Aside from being a good source of fiber, antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals; red cabbage is anti-inflammatory and very beneficial for your digestive health, aka gut.  In fact, red cabbage is a good source of the amino acid L-glutamine which can help your intestines rebuild and repair.  It reduces inflammation in the gut, soothing ulcers, and other digestive issues.  Red cabbage is a good source of vitamin C, which stimulates the formation of collagen, also essential for a strong and healthy digestive system.  Anthocyanins in red cabbage may be helpful in preventing the protein that forms brain plaque from accumulating, making it a smart food for promoting brain health.  

 

When my friend Diane mentioned that she had a red cabbage slaw that even young kids liked, my interest was peaked.  Young people generally don't like cabbage.  Diane doesn't go by a recipe, but when she told me she put lime, and cilantro in it, I was sold!  I tried to re-create her salad with measurements.  Here's what I came up with.  Thanks Diane for the inspiration and another way to add red cabbage into our diet. 

 

 

Red Cabbage Slaw

 

  • 4 cups red cabbage, sliced thin (about 1/4 head cabbage)

  • 1 medium carrot, shredded

  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced

  • 1 green onion

 

Dressing

 

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • 1 Tbsp. honey

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • Pepper to taste

 

1.  Mix together cabbage, carrots, cilantro and onion in a large bowl.

 

2.  Mix together dressing and toss with salad.

 

 

Notes

 

If you have a mandolin or a food processor, put it to work.  Very thinly sliced cabbage will yield the best textured slaw.
