  • Toss shredded cabbage and 1 teaspoon salt in a colander or large mesh strainer set over a medium bowl. Let stand until the cabbage wilts, at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours. Rinse cabbage under cold running water (or in large bowl of ice water if serving immediately). Press, but do not squeeze, to drain; pat dry with paper towels. (Can be stored in zipper-lock bag and refrigerated overnight.).
  • Stir together lime juice, zest, oil, vinegar, honey, cumin, and cayenne in medium bowl. Toss cabbage and red pepper in dressing. Season to taste with salt; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

    DH doesn't care for vinaigrettes so he didn't try it, but DS & I really enjoyed this one. Loved the crisp cabbage & red pepper complimented by the dressing. The dressing was a really nice balance of sweet, sour & spicy. In every bite there was a smooth flowing pattern of flavors; none overpowering the others. You first noticed the crunch of the veggies followed by the hint of lime, then honey, then spicy cayenne (I used about a teaspoon of it). Thanks for sharing, GriffLover! Made for New Kids on the Block tag game.
