  • 1/2 teaspoon agave nectar

Steps to Make It

Cabbage, especially when eaten raw such as in this slaw recipe, is a healthy food. Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable, which has been found to have cancer-preventive benefits. Different kinds of cabbage have different health benefits, so combining green and purple cabbage in this raw slaw recipe enhances the health benefits.

This raw slaw recipe calls for cold-pressed oil, which can be higher in nutrients than oils produced with other methods. Using heat to extract oil from seeds, fruits, nuts, and vegetables produces more oil, but this process also degrades the oil's flavors and nutritional value. Cold-pressed oil is extracted by crushing the seed or nut and forcing out the oil with a press that does not use heat and allows the nutrients to remain intact.
