Fight Allergies with Oranges

One proven way to outsmart allergies is to nosh on oranges.  The fruit's vitamin C reduces the body's output of histamines (inflammatory compounds that trigger allergy symptoms) by 38%.  Here's a delicious way to enjoy the citrus fruit.

  • 1/3 cup chopped sweet onions
In large bowl, whisk together first 5 ingredients, 1/4 cup orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon orange zest.  Season with black pepper, if desired.  Add cabbages, carrots, peppers and onions; toss gently to coat.  Chill until ready to serve.  You may add diced apples or pears if you like.
