(adapted from a recipe in the Outpost Exchange, July 2004)
1/2 c. apple juice
1/2 c. dried cranberries
1 c. fresh blueberries
2 c. finely shredded red cabbage
2 apples, chopped
1/2 c. finely julienned carrots
1/4 c. honey-roated sesame seeds*
1-2 Tablespoons lemon juice
salt and pepper
Heat apple juice, stir in dried cranberries, soak for 5 minutes, drain.
Toss drained cranberries, blueberries, cabbage, apples, carrots, and sesame seeds in a big bowl with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours - overnight is better.
* Honey-roasted sesame seeds: cover a small baking sheet with oiled aluminum foil. In a small bowl mix seeds with a teaspoon of warmed honey and spread on foil. Roast between 350-400 degrees, checking frequently after 5 minutes. (A toaster oven works well for this) Mix into salad immediately.
