This sweet & spicy cabbage salad will really brighten up your day. Cabbage for me has always been one of those things that I love to add to a salad to really have some color when I make large mixes for parties. The crisp and crunchy feeling it provides really helps make salad less boring. The great thing about cabbage is that it has so many health benefits, including helping provide you with some super vitamin C and gut-healing properties that will leave your tummy feeling awesome. This is a light refreshing salad that is crunchy, crispy, and healthy.

This Sweet & Spicy Cabbage Salad Recipe is:

  • a great idea for a social gathering with lots of folks
  • very easy to throw together when in a time crunch
  • filled with lots of vitamin c, fiber and gut-healing properties
  • easy to digest
  • fun to look at
