Cabbage Salad Recipe

A plate of cabbage salad

This cabbage salad is great to get back on tract to a healthy living after a holiday, or just a weekend. I like this salad mostly because you can make it ahead of time and it has the sweet and tangy taste. Full of nutrition and made from just  a few everyday ingredients. Eating cabbage strengthens the immune system, due to its high vitamin C content. Bell peppers promote vision and provide shiny and healthy hair! Another nutritious ingredient, carrot, cleanses the body, and slows down the aging.
