Lahanosalata is a traditional Greek salad, frequently prepared in the winter months and a favourite for the Christmas festive season! 


  • 1/4 green cabbage
  • 1/4 red cabbage
  • 1 carrot, peeled 
  • 1 x red & 1 x green capsicum
  • 1 x cup shallots
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons of white vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove diced 
  • 1/4 cup Greek olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste 


  • Finely chop your cabbage and carrots. You can use a cheese grater on a large setting, which works well for the cabbage and carrots. Set aside in large bowl.
  • Chop shallots and capsicum and add to bowl. 
  • In a small bowl add the lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil and diced garlic. Whisk until combined.
  • Pour dressing over salad and add salt and pepper. Mix well and serve.
