Potluck Cabbage Salad

This is an excellent salad to bring to a potluck.  No weird ingredients for skeptics to sneer at and nothing fussy.  Just toss all the ingredients together when it's gathering time.  This salad is best when it is freshly made.

Crunchy cabbage and almonds with a sweet/salty dressing and just a hint of smokiness from the bacon oil.

1 pound green and red cabbage, shredded
2 large or a couple of handfuls of baby carrots, shredded
    (or go the easy route and throw in a hand full of pre-shredded)
6 green onions and tops, diced
1/4 cup toasted, slivered almonds

To make ahead (because that's always more convenient!) shred the cabbage and carrots and toss with the green onions.  Keep the almonds separate until you are ready to serve so they don't absorb moisture.

Bacon dressing:
2 Tablespoons melted bacon oil
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons fine sea salt

Pour ingredients into a small jar with a lid and shake vigorously to combine.
Drizzle over mixed cabbage, carrots and onions and toss.  Then top with almonds.
