Shredded Red Cabbage and Carrot Salad

Labels: { } | © 2011 | | © 2011 |

Red cabbage, red cabbage, also known as purple cabbage, like blueberries, contains concentration of anthocyanin polyphenols that some experts believe may have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capacities. It’s an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin A.
This is a simple and delicious salad that keeps well for a few days in the refrigerator. Finely shred the cabbage into thin strands for the best result.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and blessed Christmas and success and health for the New Year 2013!

Love adding red cabbage to the salads, gives great crunch and color. My husband does not like the raw taste much, but I found if I rub it good with salt, it softens it and makes it acceptable for the picky eater. The colors in your salad are wonderful.

tigerfish 31/12/12 07:51

This is a keeper for the warmer months! I like how refreshing it is.

Roz P. 3/1/13 03:14

I can literally taste all of these ingredients in my mind at this moment! I just love it! I pinned it on Pinterest so I never have to search for this delicious recipe Angie! Thank you!

Veronica Miller 19/1/13 07:32

I have to tell you Angie, I pinned this before I even commented! This fits right in with the way I'm eating right now and will make a wonderful side dish to accompany my healthy meals. Thank you! It's just so pretty.

Anonymous 16/4/13 19:47

I had a problem with the carrot soaking up the majority of the vinegar from the dressing. Made the salad again after lightly pickling the red cabbage and it was delicious :)

Justin 17/1/14 08:11

This was great! I also added some red onion and cubed apples to take the bite out (pun intended).
