Finely chop the onion and place in a small bowl, cover with the lime juice and rice vinegar and let 'sear' for 20 minutes. If you're making something else for dinner, do the prep work for it in this interim time.
Chop carrot, red bell pepper, cabbage. Herbs should be bruised (hit them with dull edge of knife) first for optimal flavor, then sliced thin.
Mix additional ingredients into the lime-vinegar-onion mix. Toss dressing with salad and serve.
For a twist, add some grilled beef or chicken to the top of this salad to make it into a full meal. Even Homer Simpson couldn't say no this salad.
