Lahanosalata, is a festive, creamy Greek Coleslaw salad, made with cabbage, celery, onion, pomegranate, nuts and raisins and dressed with a delicious mayonnaise salad dressing, perfect during the Christmas Holidays.
For me, this is the best salad I have ever eaten!
I love eating it in the evenings as a light dinner because it is quite filling.
Update: Christmas 2017
This year, when I made this salad, I did not have any pomegranates, so in order to give it a festive look, I decorated it with small San Marzano tomatoes, which I cut in round slices and some parsley leaves and a shredded carrot. I also added white and black sultana raisins as well.
They complemented the salad, so from now on, I will be adding these ingredients as well.
I have updated the post with the new photos but have left some of the old ones as well, so that you can see the pomegrante in it.
