Detox Apple Cabbage Salad Recipe

An Apple and Cabbage Salad For Your Day of Detox

It's the perfect time to give the body a clean slate, but detox mode isn't defined by a diet of lemons and maple syrup. Candice Kumai of Top Chef fame began developing this recipe on her search for a healthier version of fat-laden coleslaw. What she ended up creating was a detox and diuretic salad that stands strong on its own. Apples marry with the dynamic duo of red and Savoy cabbage, combining for a fibre-filled meal that aids in digestion. The addition of fennel seeds adds to the fibre factor, plus a kick of cayenne boosts your metabolism.
