Asian Cabbage Salad

Asian Cabbage Salad

Cabbage is a typical fall and winter vegetable. We love it not just because it contains lots of iron and vitamin A. Our cabbage salad is fresh, easy to make, gluten free and vegan. What else do you need for healthy living? You will find thousands of cabbage recipes but this one is very influenced by the Asian cuisine and you can regulate the spice the way you like it.
