Red cabbage always calls for salad making. Being one of the light vegetables and also something that is rich in minerals and vitamin K and C, it is probably something that we should have more often. Not all vegetables have such high quantities of these vitamins, which by the way, are fat soluble and Vitamin K especially helps in developing bone density in children. I have included some proteins too in here, but if you are averse, you can avoid them.
This is a tossed salad. I like tossed salads per se, because they eliminate some smell that such vegetables have, and there is not more than 5 percent loss of nutrients.
