Mound of cabbage slaw with orange slice garnishes

Refreshing and Low Calorie

Cabbage, either raw or cooked, has been proven to lower cholesterol. Replacing mayonnaise or buttermilk with oil and lemon juice makes for a much lighter, almost pickled mixture, and the taste of fresh mint lightens and lifts the entire dish. Chopping and mixing begins and ends the labor. For a special treat, try adding apples, cranberries, or chopped nuts.
