Ingredients (Serves 6-8):
1 head white cabbage, thinly shredded

Method: In a large salad bowl, add the shredded cabbage, salt, and lemon juice.  Using your hands, massage the cabbage until it has softened slightly. 

In a jar or cup, combine the olive oil, sugar, vinegar, Dijon mustard, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.  Whisk or shake until combined. 

Pour olive oil dressing over cabbage and toss to coat.  Add the cilantro, cranberries, both blueberries and sliced almonds. Toss gently and taste to see if more salt is needed; serve.
