When we met our new neighbors, they were quick to invite us over for a Shabbat dinner. In typical Israeli fashion, the dinner was multiple courses leaving us feeling very satisfied and very stuffed. I love to see what people serve, to see what they have learned to cook through their life experiences. I always leave dinners with new cooking-inspiration. One of my favorite dishes served at this particular dinner was a purple cabbage salad with a mix of fruits and nuts that are shouk staples. I loved that it was crunchy, hearty, and fresh. It was also a wonderful mix of savory and sweet. I quickly created my own version of the salad, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
