Red Cabbage Slaw

What to do with a head a red cabbage... hmmmm?  Look no further!  This made a fantastically fresh summertime side dish!  I apologize that mine isn't "prettier"-- I didn't get it smoothly blended (wishing for a good food-processor!) but it still tasted great- I loved the addition of honey.... but then I like the addition of honey in just about anything. :)

Red Cabbage Slaw (Bobby Flay)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 small red onion, coarsely chopped
2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup canola oil
Salt and pepper
1/2 head red cabbage, finely shredded

Combine all ingredients, except cabbage, in a blender and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Place cabbage in a large bowl and toss with the vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper and let sit 30 minutes in the refrigerator before serving.
