Recipe from Smitten Kitchen

If you have been ordering any of the mixed date boxes we have been offering as an extra, here is a great use for them.

1 to 1 1/4 lb Red Cabbage, sliced very thin

3 TB Olive Oil

2 TB Lime or Lemon Juice

Salt and Red Pepper Flakes, to taste

1/2 cup pitted Dates, coarsely chopped

4 oz Feta, crumbled 

1 TB chopped flat-leaf Parsley

2 tsp well toasted Sesame Seeds

Toss cabbage with olive oil and first TB of lime or lemon juice, salt and pepper, coating leaves evenly.  Taste and add more lime/lemon 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 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.  Serve.
