Citrus Kissed Cabbage Salad

Citrus Kissed Cabbage Salad

In terms of inspiration, this salad is a little bit coleslaw, a little bit Waldorf salad, with a sunny addition of citrus to the mix. It’s a delightfully crunchy and flavorful addition to any meal from breakfast to dinner, and keeps well for lunches during the week.
