Cabbage and Almond Salad

Adapted from Everybody Likes Sandwiches

I wanted a salad that was a little different from the lettuce/tomato/cucumber mode and I found this one that turned out great. I added toasted almonds and some red pepper for color and it was crunchy and delicious.

1/2 cabbage
1-2 red peppers, diced
1/2 cup toasted almond slivers
1 cup garbanzo beans

3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp Red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 Tbsp parsley
1 clove garlic, finely minced
salt and pepper to taste

Toast the almonds with a little oil and salt until lightly browned. Set aside. Dice the cabbage into small pieces and add in the red pepper and garbanzo beans and toss. Mix the dressing in a small bowl, pour desired amount onto the salad, and toss. Garnish with almonds and serve.
