Every Thursday I pick up our CSA farm share box and can’t wait to see all the goodies waiting inside for us. This week we had some amazing fresh veggies and herbs that go so well together and make for a perfect, quick and easy no-cook meal in the sweltering heat of summer.
Vegetables from each color of the rainbow contain unique pigment based phytonutrients. Red cabbage is also a member of the cruciferous vegetable family which boasts nutrients to help the liver with natural detoxification process. Fennel provides potassium and a phytonutrient called anethole, which in research has demonstrated important health promoting properties like reducing inflammation. Like the orange in this salad, fennel also contains the important antioxidant, vitamin C.
