Cabbage Apple Citrus Salad with Walnuts & Raisins

This is a variation of my Autumn Slaw recipe. In this dish, as well as in the original, there is no added sugar, salt or oil. Instead of fresh orange juice, I use one of the new vinegars we now carry at Mother Earth’s  Storehouse, tangerine balsamic. It blends quite well with the fresh lemon…

In this recipe all the seasonings are cooked into the millet; this adds a depth of flavor to the patties. The starch in the millet binds the croquettes (no eggs or flour needed). It’s…
