This is a gorgeous salad! I took it to a big get-together this afternoon and was glad I had found this beautiful dish to bring :-) I doubled the amount of cherry tomatoes, subsituted honey mustard for Dijon, and omitted the parsley. However, I thought the dressing could use more oomph. It may just personal preferences, but even though I like vegetables, I would prefer the dressing to have a more assertive flavor. The dressing was delicious but I thought I could taste too much of that "bitter" cabbage flavor. If you like cabbage, though, this would be great for you! I'll be making it again (especially because it has no mayo or sugar) but I'm going to add something to the dressing...more mustard, or herbs, or something like that. Thanks for the recipe!
