Nutritional values

Red cabbage is one of the big stars among the suppliers of vitamin C - all the more natural if eaten raw. The kneading ensures that it is easily digestible in this form and still provides a lot of fibre.

Cheese and pears are always a nice pair! If you don't like the strong blue cheese taste, you can replace the gorgonzola as you like with a stronger but slightly softer cheese such as Appenzeller or Emmental.
