Growing up it was usually served as coleslaw slathered with that goopy white stuff (instead of in a pretty Rainbow Asian Slaw!) Turns out I was allergic to eggs and my body intuitively KNEW to avoid mayonnaise at all costs. 😎
Once I had cabbage (and even Brussels sprouts!) served in a few super-delicious ways like this Rainbow Asian Slaw, I jumped in with both feet. Now days cabbage is a staple aboard our boat. I love making a variety of cabbage salads because they are so EASY to make. This colorful Rainbow Asian Slaw is perfect for summer, brightening up any plate and helping you to eat a rainbow of fresh foods every day.
Plus the health benefits of cabbage (all types, red, green, Napa, even Brussels sprouts) are numerous. Cabbage is packed full of nutritional benefits like cancer-fighting phytonutrients, tons of vitamins and minerals, and powerful anti-oxidants. Cabbage is also super anti-inflammatory, and supports the digestive tract by helping to regulate gut bacteria. So eat up!
