Crispy, crunchy, tart, sweet, creamy. This salad does it all. Serve in the fall or spring. Pears could be interchanged with apples. Choose goat cheese or blue cheese instead of goat cheese. Or pecans over pepitas. Add halves of grapes or not. But leave the dressing just the way it is. This could be an equally fun appetizer when served in lettuce cups.
In a big bowl, place the red cabbage, bell pepper, apple and cilantro. Toss together to combine.
In a small bowl, add the orange juice, vinegar, honey, Dijon and olive oil and a pinch of kosher salt. Whisk together well and drizzle over cabbage mixture.
Toss to combine. Sprinkle cheese crumbles and nuts.
Serve and refrigerate any leftovers.
