Lahanosalata (Greek Cabbage Slaw / Salad)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by evelynathens

This is a very fresh-tasting cabbage salad - very unlike the slaws you're probably used to. Comes together in no time at all (especially if you use one of those bags of slaw mixes).

I was looking to make a slaw without mayo and stumbled upon this recipe. Let me just say that my BF and I ate the whole thing in one day! We just couldn't get enough. Next summer this will be my go-to slaw for potlucks and BBQ's. I very highly recommend this recipe to everyone. Thank you evelyn.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Core the cabbage and shred as for making traditional coleslaw.
  2. Put the cabbage and carrot in a large bowl. Toss well.
  3. In a small bowl mix the olive oil, lemon juice and garlic (if using).
  4. Add salt to taste.
  5. Just prior to serving, pour over the salad and toss to coat.
  6. Adjust seasonings and olive oil or lemon juice as needed.
  7. Note: This is really lovely served with a generous hunk of feta cheese - either crumbled in, or served alongside so you can nibble on pieces of creamy cheese between bites of crispy salad.
