Anyway, I made this first experimentally and on the fly for some friends one night who came over for dinner. I had been so overwhelmed with coming up with a raw dessert that I completely neglected a side dish! So, I sent Andrew to the store and this is what I made:
Ta Da! There you have it. A raw coleslaw that is SO GOOD. I have seen a variation of this which added Asian Pear and Lemon juice, but this is what I did and I LOVE it. I made it for a pitch-in yesterday and am taking another batch to another dinner tomorrow. It really is just that good! :) :)
NUTRITIONAL ELEMENTS: What is also cool about raw coleslaw is that it is FULL of some really awesome vitamins and minerals. Bok Choy is full of glucosinolates, which can help prevent certain cancers. It is also full of carotenes, vitamin C, and CALCIUM (good recipe for pregnant women who need calcium in their vegan diets). The cabbage also has TONS phytochemicals (glucosinolates) (PHYTO=FIGHT-) for fighting cancer! Actually, cabbage family veggies have more than any other veggies out there! Also, cabbage is good for treating peptic ulcers!
