Quick Pickled Red Cabbage

Print

I am always in search for refreshing side dishes that adds a little acid to my meal without upsetting my stomach. This quick picked red cabbage can be made ahead and is an easy side dish for almost all type of meat, or to be added to any salad. As an option, you can add some Superfood Turmeric to this-it will add a nice spice flavor and you will get some anti-inflammatory benefits from the turmeric and other spices in this delicious blend.

 

Further Food Commentary:

Red cabbage's red hue reminds us that we're getting two cancer preventing substances--flavonoids and sulfur based compounds. For every one cup of red cabbage, it contain 28 calories, 1 g of protein and 2 g of dietary fiber--5% of recommended daily intake for men and 8% for women and contain 56% of recommended daily intake of vitamin C. The insoluble fiber from the red cabbage prevents constipation, lower risk of diverticular disease development and helps relieve irritable bowel syndrome symptoms. Besides the common use of apple cider vinegar in making homemade pickles, marinades and salad dressing, apple cider vinegar seems to give subtle improvement in blood sugar levels.
