Sito's Lebanese Cabbage Salad

From the kitchen of: Lindsay Bierman, executive editor. My Sito (grandmother) used to make this REALLY salty and lemony and mix it all up in a giant bowl with her bare hands. I remember her every holiday standing over the sink, chopping and mixing, chopping and mixing.
