Cabbage and Persimmon Salad with Sweet and Sour Dressing

The sweet and sour dressing and fresh herbs in this updated Israeli cabbage salad keep the salad feeling light, while the hint of garlic and bright purple cabbage keep it strongly tied to the dish that inspired it. Together, the ingredients make a bright and colorful salad that has no resemblance to the lifeless one that fills endless pitas.
