Red Cabbage, Apple and Fennel Salad September 18 2014 by Simone Denny 1 Comment

I love this colourful salad with it’s many shades of red. It is an excellent antioxidant salad, helping the body to fight free radicals. Both red cabbage and gojis are a rich source of vitamin C, A and E – making them powerful antioxidant foods. Pomegranates are also an excellent antioxidant food, this largely due to the punicalagins they contain (plus they also contain vitamin C). Punicalagins are responsible for pomegranate's antioxidant abilities; these compounds are particularly good for the heart and blood vessel health.
