Summer Confetti Salad

This salad was tossed together at the last minute, but my family loved it so much that I knew I had to share it with you. I’ve had similar salads made with strawberrries and spinach, but I’ve never seen one with apricots and cabbage. I was delighted to discover that they were such a tasty combination, especially since I happen to have a lot of both right now. This salad is loaded with nutrition, color and taste.

Summer Confetti Salad

3 cups of thinly shredded cabbage (any kind)
1 cup of other greens (I used turnip greens–spinach or chard would work well too)
1 cup strawberries, chopped fairly small
1 cup fresh apricots, chopped fairly small

Juice from 2 limes
3 T. sugar
3 T. oil

Chop fruit and vegetables and mix in a bowl. Whisk together the dressing until sugar is dissolved. (If you don’t wait til sugar is dissolved, a family member may feel the grit between his teeth and accuse you of not washing the greens. Just sayin’.) When dressing is mixed, pour quickly over salad and toss to coat evenly. Grab your portion of this salad immediately or you may not get any. Especially if you have a 12 year old daughter who goes back for more four seven times.
