#A delicate blend of flavors combine to make this delicious salad. As a variation add 1/4 cup raisins and 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts. This is a tasty accompaniment to grilled chicken or turkey.#
Put all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl and whisk with a fork. Taste and season well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Next soak all of the cut up onion in a bowl of water for 5-10 minutes. Drain, rinse and pat dry. This will take away the raw taste of onions.
And finally combine cabbage, pepper, onion, carrot, parsley and lemon peel in a large bowl. Toss with enough dressing just before serving. The vegetables will then retain their crispness.
A little squeeze of lemon juice and a generous amount of chopped parsley over the top of the salad should just about do it.
