Rainbow slaw (v, df, gf)

I have a spiralizer obsession at the moment if you haven’t noticed yet. I spiralizer absolut everything as you can see in this salad. But don’t worry, you can make the salad even without the spiralizer. This vibrant salad does not only look pretty, it also tastes delicious and is packed with tons of nutrients. Serve it as an appetiser or main dish combined with grilled meat, tofu, fish, or tempeh. The dressing combines asian flavours with a creamy nutty tahini and complements the freshness of the vegetables perfectly. 

Cabbage is a low-calorie, yet nutrient dense food providing an excellent source of many nutrients such as vitamin  C, potassium, folic acid, vitamin B6, calcium..the list goes on and on. The most important compounds found in cabbage are the phytochemical called glucosinolate which are known to reduce the risks of cancer (also found in broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower).
