This nourishing salad contains many spices including turmeric, which has been shown to help reduce inflammation in the body as a result of its active ingredient called curcumin.  This salad is also rich in iron, magnesium and vitamins B6, C and A.   Red cabbage and carrots are rich in antioxidant phytonutrients including beta-carotene and anthocyanins that may help to reduce the risk of diseases such as heart disease and cancer.  If you don’t eat meat then try with a firm white fish such as monkfish or halibut.  This dish would also work well with firm tofu, which is a great alternative for vegans (replace the fish sauce with light soy or tamari sauce).
