Eating seasonally is a good idea. Not only is it cheaper, but you can take advantage of locally grown produce, especially fun if there's a farmer's market or orchard within an easy drive. With cabbage and apples abundant right now, I often whip up this recipe that blends them in a tasty salad (modeled after the Yum Apple Salad at my local Thai restaurant.). Truly yummy!

3 c thinly sliced cabbage
1 c peeled, sliced apple
1/4 c peanuts
red pepper strips (optional)

1/4 c lime juice
4 cloves garlic (2 t crushed garlic)
1 t ginger
1/2 t salt
2 t honey
1/2 c cilantro
1/2 c oil

Blend dressing in food processor. It may make more than you need for the recipe, so add enough so that the salad is well dressed, but not soaking.
