Over the Rainbow Cabbage Salad Recipe

I wanted to share this colorful and nutrient dense salad called Over the Rainbow Cabbage Salad. The other nutrients present in cabbage, such as vitamin E, are beneficial for the skin, eyes, and hair. The calcium, magnesium, and potassium found in cabbage are also useful for a wide range of health benefits.
