Date, feta and red cabbage salad

Course: 
A different and tasty twist on a cabbage salad. Bring some color to the dinner table.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 to 1 1/4 pounds red cabbage (1 small head or half of a large one), sliced very thin
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice (I use lime)
  • Salt and red pepper flakes (I used the mild Aleppo variety) to taste
  • About 1/2 cup pitted dates, coarsely chopped or sliced
  • 4 ounces feta, crumbled into chunks
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons well-toasted sesame seeds
Directions: 

Toss cabbage with olive oil and first tablespoons of lime juice, plus salt and pepper, coating leaves evenly. Taste and add more lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. I do this a few times, making sure I really get this base well seasoned because it will be hard to do it as well later.

Toss dressed cabbage gently with half of dates and feta. Sprinkle with remaining dates, then feta, then parsley and sesame seeds. Dig in.
