This is a perfect summer salad, fresh and refreshing.

Cauliflower is immensely nutritious 

While cauliflower is not a well-studied cruciferous vegetable from a health standpoint, you will find several dozen studies linking cauliflower-containing diets to cancer prevention, particularly with respect to the following types of cancer: bladder cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and ovarian cancer. This connection between cauliflower and cancer prevention should not be surprising, since cauliflower provides special nutrient support for three body systems that are closely connected with cancer development as well as cancer prevention.

These three systems are:

 detox system

 antioxidant system

 inflammatory/anti-inflammatory system

Chronic imbalances in any of these three systems can increase risk of cancer, and when imbalances in all three systems occur simultaneously, the risk of cancer increases significantly.



1/2 medium head of cauliflower                         Salt and Pepper

1/2 red cabbage                                                  1 cup of sliced cucumber
