Just like yesterday's fennel and blood orange salad, this is a lovely little slaw -- but no credit to the blood orange. Feel free to use the juice of a regular orange!
HOW TO REVIVE TIRED CABBAGE If your cabbage has been in the frig a bit and looks a tad limp, wash the outside parts, then cut into big wedges and let rehydrate in cold water for 5 - 10 minutes. Chop and then drain well (or run through a salad spinner) before tossing with the dressing.
FROM THE ARCHIVES It's getting to be salad time, for sure and I do love the crunch of a good vegetable salad, check the vegetable salad recipes in the Recipe Box for proof!

RED & GREEN SLAW with BLOOD ORANGE DRESSING
Time to table: 15 minutes
6 tablespoons blood orange juice (or regular juice) from about 1 - 2 oranges
1 1/2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1 tablespoon olive oil (reduced from 4 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon low-fat mayonnaise (reduced from 4 tablespoons, I love the Hellman's low-fat mayonnaise)
1 tablespoon minced red onion (the inspiring recipe used shallot)
Salt & pepper to taste
Red cabbage, sliced thin (the inspiring recipe used savoy)
Green cabbage, sliced thin (the inspiring recipe used radicchio)
(the inspiring recipe added a sliced red pepper)
(the inspiring recipe added a half cup of dried cranberries)
Whisk the dressing ingredients in the bottom of the serving bowl. (The inspiring recipe suggests chilling for two hours.) Add the cabbage, toss and serve.
