Use a mandolin slicer or extreme patience and a sharp knife to thinly slice the cabbage, onion and bell peppers.  The result is a light and fluffy pile of veggie loveliness. Constantly will the oil while adding the vinegar, lime juice and honey.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.  Pour over the veggie loveliness and toss.
