Spicy citrus dressing combined with summer vegetables makes it more than just a salad: it makes it an experience.  Light and refreshing, it’s also quick to make, especially if you can delegate the chore of chopping to your food processor.

  • 1 cup red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds, soaked and dried
  • ¼ cup (tightly packed) cilantro, leaves only
  • 2 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 ½  Tbsp. freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ¼ tsp. Celtic sea salt, or to taste
  • ¼ tsp. ground cumin
  • small pinch cayenne pepper
Combine the first five ingredients in a bowl and gently toss until mixed. Place the remaining five ingredients in a small bottle and shake well. Pour over the vegetables and serve.
