Carrot and Red Cabbage Salad


Cabbage can be steamed, boiled, stuffed, microwaved, and eaten raw to unlock its vitamin C and fiber health benefits! It can be used in a healthy side of coleslaw or stuffed with meatballs to add protein. Cabbage is one of the oldest vegetables in the world, but it still tastes just as good today in almost any recipe!

  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 1-3 Tbsp chopped jalapeno or serrano peppers (optional)
