Honey-Lime Cabbage Slaw

I’m humming a little song inside my head as I stroll by the tired looking “fresh” vegetables in our grocery store. I call it the Dregs of Winter Blues. As I wearily start another verse, I add up the number of weeks each sorry head of lettuce or tomato may have spent in refrigeration before arriving at their Nebraska destination or imagine them flying in from some farm a continent or more away.

When I get to the heads of cabbage, I start to feel better. The cabbage seems to say, “I’m your vegetable because I’m born and bred to endure the chill of winter.” When you pick up a head of cabbage it feels solid and nutritionally dense, but we know from experience that it shreds easily with a grater or mandolin, in your food processor, or with a sharp, thin knife. Of course, you can also buy pre-processed “angel hair” cabbage in a plastic bag, but that’s not how we do things at Buzz Savories.

To lighten your step and start a journey to clear away the dregs of winter, mix Buzz Savories pure Artisanal Honey with freshly squeezed lime juice plus extra-virgin olive oil then toss with shredded cabbage and thinly sliced red sweet pepper. Buzz Savories Artisanal Honey is ideal for this recipe because it gives you the clean, true taste of the flowers bees choose for their honey. 

Serve yourself a generous bowl and savor the light citrus-sweet flavor and honeyed crunch. Summer isn’t here, yet, but it’s coming, and making this salad will make the wait easier to take.
