Hello, color! Want to put some spark on your plate? Ignite some passion with this refreshing and simple dish.
I grew up eating this salad. As a picky child, I might have turned my nose up at the thought of salad, but when my mom put this happy ditty on my plate, I gobbled it up gleefully.
Crisp, subtle purple cabbage meets sweet carrot and tubby, plum-rich raisins—all doused in a rain of golden orange juice for a fully fresh, vibrant salad that’s as much color as it is flavor.
Double bonus: every ingredient here is grown by a California farmer. Win!
