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…
