This cabbage and carrot salad is so simple but yet so delicious.  This is a very classic winter salad you will find in restaurants in Greece throughout winter till spring using just a few ingredients.

This is a very easy salad to make, especially if you have a food processor with a salad attachment or a salad shredder, you can finely shred the vegetables in no time,  otherwise you have to finely cut the cabbage by hand and grate the carrots.  It can be stored in the refrigerator in an air tight container, for 3 – 4 days but without adding the olive oil.

Cabbage salad goes with practically with everything, especially with meat or  fish.  You can substitute white cabbage with purple cabbage and if you like to make it even healthier, I have made another salad with more antioxidant ingredients.

The classic salad dressing for this salad is olive oil and lemon juice or vinegar.  However, I love adding some mustard and honey in the dressing as well.
