Who says that coleslaw always has to be heavy and hearty! As light as here, it tastes surprisingly fine. And brings a lot of good things, such as vitamin C from pointed cabbage, paprika and lime. The spicy ingredients also boost the metabolism.
Raw pointed cabbage is much more digestible than other types of cabbage. Sensitive ones can make it even more digestible by kneading it. The rule is: the stronger and longer, the better!
