For Today's vegan thurday i wanted share my fav and a very healthy salad or slaw . Red cabbage also known as purple cabbage which contains so many health benefits and highly recommended for women as it has antioxidants to kills the cancer cells  and prevents  breast cancer. 

While green cabbage is the most commonly eaten variety of cabbage, highly recommend cabbage is said to be  red cabbage because of its added nutritional benefits and its robust hearty flavor. It has been said that  health benefits as dietary antioxidants, as an anti-inflammatory, and their potentially protective, preventative, and therapeutic roles in a number of human diseases is high . 

 So to this healthy veggie i added carrot in this slaw recipe with a sweet and tangy dressing. Serve this flavorful cabbage  carrot salad chilled or at room temperature its going to taste yummy . Lets move on to the recipe.
