Disease Fighting Cabbage Salad Recipe

Cabbage is good for you! Contrary to the popular myth spread by evil minions opposing the “whole foods can heal you” movement, cabbage, and other cruciferous vegetables, won’t give you a goiter! Yes, you can quote me on that.   There is nothing I despise more than a good sounding lie, and “cruciferous vegetables are goiterogenic” is one of them.

Don’t be afraid to eat your cabbage. It won’t destroy your thyroid gland! I have eaten cabbage my whole life (I don’t know if it’s the Russian in me, or because our family really likes cabbage), before and after my hypothyroidism diagnosis, yet, I never had a goiter, and still was able to cure hypothyroidism without any medications, while eating cabbage in unthinkable amounts.

Did I already tell you that I like cabbage?  I like it in soups, I like it fermented (think sauerkraut), I like cabbage rolls, and I like it in salads.  I could probably come up with 101 ways to enjoy cabbage.

So, today I am going to share one of my absolute favorite cabbage salad recipes. It’s so easy to make, you will slap yourself silly for not thinking of this recipe yourself.
