Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved red cabbage. I think it was mostly the bright purple color and crazy squiggly shape thing, but I also loved the taste. It and the blue cheese were my favorite parts of the tossed salads I was served.
Of course, as an adult, I had to make a dish from my favorite bits, the red cabbage and blue cheese. Then come to find out the thing is actually healthy.
There is some evidence that red cabbage may cut Alzheimer’s risk. Not only that but it may even reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. Pass the slaw, please!
