Broccoli, Date & Cabbage Salad w/ Spiced Nuts

Another broccoli salad?    Yes, but this one has cabbage and dates, 2 ingredients I love. I can't say enough good things about this healthy, crunchy, delicious dish. It would be great at summer parties, and it keeps well at room temperature. The tahini dressing is delicious, and I finally found a tahini that I actually like.  (I bought it at World Market, and it is just called "Mediterranean Sesame Paste Tahini" made in Greece, you can order it online). The recipe is from Eric Greenspan, and he uses spiced peanuts, but by all means, use almonds or cashews if you prefer. A tip:  don't substitute green cabbage for the red/purple cabbage.  The regular cole slaw mix cabbage does not hold up well to the tahini dressing (I tried it!!)......stick with the thicker, heartier purple it's prettier! Crunchy Broccoli, Date & Cabbage Salad: medium size head of broccoli, cut into small florets 1/2 head of purple cabbage, sliced into thin ribbons 1/2 cup of
