Red Cabbage Slaw

This is an awesomely delicious salad! Seriously. It is colorful, nutritious, and amazingly good. Now that the weather is warming up (finally!), I am turning to cold foods to keep my body and soul in balance. And yes, food has the power not only to balance your health, but also your well-being. 

1 red cabbage
2 carrots
1 small red onion
1/3 c. raisins
1/3 c. walnuts or pecans 
1/3 c. cilantro
1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
1/3 c. honey
1/3 brown sugar
2 tblspns mayonnaise (optional) 

What to do?
First, chop onion and shock it--put onion in boiling water for 30 seconds, then drain in cold water, put it aside. In large bowl, add cider, honey, sugar, and mix together--add raisins and soak them for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, remove the outer leafs from cabbage, then chop it into thin strips. Peel carrots with potato peeler--add the cabbage, onion, carrots, mayonnaise and gently combine all together. Lastly, add the nuts and cilantro and gently combine together. Put the salad in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour--chill well before serving. This salad will keep well in the fridge for several days, and specially if you skip the mayo (or if you use vegan mayo).
