1/2 head Napa cabbage or green cabbage, thinly sliced
1 medium carrot, shredded
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup packed fresh basil leaves, chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup canola oil
Combine lemon juice, orange juice, honey, mustard, basil and seasoning in a blender. Blend on high speed then drizzle in the canola oil while blending (everyone says "drizzle" for the oil in vinaigrettes, but I am not sure it matters how quickly you add the oil). The dressing is a delightful light green and just the best.
Toss some of it with the veggies and serve. You will have more dressing for another salad.
