Cabbage Carrot Slaw

I LOVE cabbage! Especially the fresh and crunchy, young spring green cabbage. It’s healthy, full of amazing nutrients, crunchy and just delicious!

Since young spring cabbage first appeared on the market, it’s on our daily menu. Me and my husband, we literally eat cabbage almost every day. We love cabbage stew but most favorite are the cabbage coleslaws. YES! My husband is a huge fan of slaws.

But non-salad excites him more than this Cabbage Carrot Slaw. And he’s right to love this salad so much. Fresh crispy Cabbage Carrot Slaw is the best thing that can happen to you this spring.

This salad may sound ordinary and like nothing special. BUT believe me… it’s one colorful bowl of pure HEALTH and instant happiness. To make this beautiful salad I used young green cabbage, fresh carrots and celery root – celeriac. If you haven’t incorporated celeriac in your meals, please do it like right NOW. It’s sooo healthy, and sooo flavorful and good. I also added sweet corn that has that lovely soft texture… great addition to any salad if you ask me.

Cabbage Carrot Slaw is full of nutrients – especially dietary fibers that are great for our digestion and weight-loss. It’s loaded with vitamins that boost our immunity. Green cabbage is full of vitamin K, vitamin C and vitamin B6 crucial for keeping our immune system up and running. I’m telling you this because of those spring allergies that are going on in this time of year… so let us help our bodies fight those nasty inflammations … with cabbage off course.

Also, cabbage is an excellent source of many essential minerals – like manganese. Carrot, celeriac and cabbage are great body cleansers, so this Cabbage Carrot Slaw is great for spring detox too.
