Healthy Veggie Slaw

This is my favorite slaw!  It is full of healthy ingredients, and the dressing is simple and the addition of garlic takes it to a new level of delicious.  If you only have green cabbage on hand, by all means go ahead a use it instead of the combination of the red & green cabbage and kale.  This salad is addictive and complements so many other dishes, especially fried foods, sandwiches, and stews.  I like to have this in my refrigerator at all times!

2 cups each, red and green cabbage

2 cups dinosaur Kale, cut into julienne strips

1 medium English cucumber, cut into thin half-moon slices

1/2 small red onion, cut into very thin half-round slices

1 medium red or green pepper cut into thin strips

1 large carrot, peeled and coarsely shredded

1 large clove of garlic, peeled and minced very fine

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon coarsely-ground black pepper

2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons honey

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

3 Tablespoons vegetable or olive oil

1 Tablespoon chopped fresh dill

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl (cabbages through carrot).

Place remaining ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together well (garlic through dill).  

Add the dressing to the vegetable in the bowl and stir well.  Cover and refrigerator for at least an hour, preferably 2-3 hours.  Serve.
