Red Cabbage and Orange Salad with Lime Ginger Vinaigrette

There isn't much of a story to tonight's meal. I simply wanted something healthy and easy. The fact that it is also really pretty doesn't hurt at all.

Red Cabbage and Orange Salad
inspired by the Watercress, Orange and Avocado Salad from Bon Appetit, December 2005

1 small head of red cabbage, chopped
1 green pepper, diced
3 navel oranges
Bean sprouts

Remove peel and pith from oranges. Pull apart each segment and halve. Mix together cabbage, pepper, oranges and sprouts.

Lime Ginger Vinaigrette*

Juice from 1 1/2 limes
1 tsp. grated ginger
1 small clove of garlic
1 tsp. honey
salt and pepper
1/2 c. olive oil

Combine lime juice, ginger, garlic, honey, salt and pepper. Add olive oil slowly in a thin stream. Dress salad.

* All measurements are an approximation. Play with it and find the right balance to suit your taste.
