Eating healthy, anti-inflammatory diet recipes doesn’t have to be boring! This delicious take on slaw includes the sweetness (and crunch!) of a variety of apples alongside a helping of Paleo Mayo! Your taste buds will be begging for more Apple Slaw!

Apples are a rich source of various phytochemicals including flavonoids (e.g., catechins, flavonols, and quercetin) and other phenolic compounds (e.g., epicatechin and procyanidins) found in the skin, core, and pulp of the apple.

Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K, containing more than 20% of the Daily Value (DV) for each of these nutrients per serving. Cabbage is also a good source (10–19% DV) of vitamin B6 and folate, with no other nutrients having significant content per 100-gram serving.

Basic research on cabbage phytochemicals is ongoing to discern if certain cabbage compounds may affect health or have anti-disease effects. Such compounds include sulforaphane and other glucosinolates which may stimulate the production of detoxifying enzymes during metabolism. Studies suggest that cruciferous vegetables, including cabbage, may have protective effects against colon cancer.
