Up until about a year ago, I had never bought purple cabbage much less cooked with it. I had tasted it sprinkled in to salad mixes before but never thought much about it until reading The Beauty Detox book by Kimberly Snyder and being introduced to this recipe.

Kimberly spins this slaw as a way to reduce crow’s feet, but the ingredients (especially the cabbage!) are also super cancer-fighters, so for those two reasons alone, it’s worth trying this new alternative slaw recipe!
