This salad combines lots of fabulous nutrients together: Fennel contains many great health-promoting antioxidants and a unique phytonutrient called Anethole that acts as an anti-inflammatory. It is also a good source of Vitamin C. Did you know that half a cup of sesame seeds contains three times more calcium than half a cup of whole milk? In addition to being an excellent dietary source of calcium, sesame seeds are also a good source of manganese, copper, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1 (thiamin), zinc, vitamin E, healthy protein, and dietary fiber.
1 fennel bulb with fronds, ¼ inch chopped
¼ cup chopped purple and green cabbage

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 cloves of minced garlic
1/2 tablespoon thinly sliced scallion
