This tasty lunch literally has every color of the rainbow – red from the pepper, orange from the carrots, yellow from the savoy, green from the scallions and blue/purple (one category in the nutrition world) from the red cabbage. (Isn’t it funny that red cabbage and onions are actually purple?) But I digress…
By eating the color of the rainbow every day, you ensure that your body gets all of the nutrients it needs to thrive. Since my 5 month old still gets the bulk of his nutrition from my body, this makes me a happy mommy.
Your fork is waiting.
- 1/2 head savoy cabbage
- 2 c shredded carrots
- 4 scallions thinly sliced
- 2 oz roasted peanuts crushed
- 1 tbs toasted sesame seeds optional garnish
- 8 oz shredded cooked chicken breast rotisserie works great!
Wisk together the dressing in the bottom of a large bowl and set aside.
Thinly slice the cabbage and add to the bowl along with shredded carrots and scallions.
Toss well with dressing and garnish with peanuts, sesame seeds and top with chicken breast.
Excellent source of Vitamins A and C
