Let me be the first to rate this recipe as fabulous! I like to add mandarin oranges to my salads so I utilized the juice packed with the oranges instead of regular OJ. I also wanted to allow the salad time to marinade but, I know red cabbage "bleeds" easily. So, I marinaded the cabbage separately in a small amount of the dressing and assembled each individual's serving on their plate. I was most impressed since we have a picky 8 year-old and she devoured hers!

Crisp and delicious. I added an ounce of olive oil to the dressing so it would stick to the veg a bit better.

The salad is really good, but the dressing is awesome! I did add a little lemon to it and substitued splenda for the sugar. If you use the low sugar orange juice it brings the calorie count down even lower! I put this dressing on slaws, bean salads, and tossed salads. It is also a great marinade for chicken or shrimp! The possibilities are endless with this. Thank you!
