  • 4 cups shredded Napa cabbage
  • 1 cup peeled and shredded carrots – I used orange, purple, and yellow
  • 1/4 cup diced green onion

Combine shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, and diced green onion in a bowl.

Lime dressing

In a small bowl, combine olive oil, honey, lime juice, and celery seeds. Stir well. Pour dressing over vegetables and gently toss to coat evenly.  This dish comes together quickly.  If you need to prepare it ahead of time, refrigerate components separately and wait until just before serving to toss in the dressing.  The Napa cabbage is more delicate and tends to wilt after about 3 hours.

Enjoy!
