Coleslaw (a cabbage based salad)

Coleslaw is a very famous variety of salad made with shredded cabbage along with other vegetables. There are various ways to make coleslaw. Here I am sharing my favorite recipe for coleslaw. Green cabbage and red cabbage both are very rich in Vitamin A, C and also K. Doctors say that red cabbage has 10 times more vitamin A than green cabbage. Both the cabbages are a good source of fibers and minerals. They are also very rich in iron. Red cabbage is easily available in the western farmer’s market and super markets, in case if you do not find red cabbage in your part of the world use green cabbage only for this preparation. Try out this salad and please do share your comments.
