Tri-color Slaw

Cabbages are from the Brassica family and are especially high in the cancer-fighting phytochemicals called Sulphoraphanes. Cutting and bruising the plant tissues actually increases the levels of these phytonutrients as the raw leaves sit. So I recommend slicing and preparing the cabbage in this recipe at least an hour or so before you plan to eat it to maximize it’s cancer fighting potential! The carrots add wonderful color as well as large amounts of beta carotene, a valuable antioxidant that helps to power our immune system.
