Nutrition Spotlight

One cup of raw, shredded cabbage provides 60 percent of your daily-recommended allowance of vitamin K, which is important for healthy blood coagulation and maintaining bone mass.

Raw, shredded napa cabbage offers plenty of vitamin C, phytonutrients, and fiber.

Shrimp is an excellent source of the antioxidant mineral selenium. Selenium has been shown to reduce the chances of heart failure, as well as for other health problems including type 2 diabetes, compromised cognitive function.

Mangos are packed with antioxidants and Vitamin C, which help protect the body against cardiovascular disease and cancer!

Adding ginger and garlic in place of salt adds tons of flavor with little to no sugars, sodium, or calories.

Key Techniques & Helpful Hints

  1. Napa cabbage, also known as Chinese cabbage, has a delicate flavor with a peppery kick.
  2. One-half of a medium-size cabbage will yield about 4 1/2 cups when shredded.
