Greek Cabbage Salad with Carrots and Olives (Politiki Salata)
Cabbage-based politiki salata may be a dish for fall and winter in Greece, but the bright flavors and crisp textures are great any time of the year. In fact, we found it an excellent accompaniment to grilled meats and fish. The salad is best eaten the day it is made, but it can be refrigerated for up to four hours in advance; hold off on adding the feta and olives until just before serving.
medium head (14 ounces) green cabbage, thinly sliced (about 4 cups)
medium carrots, peeled and coarsely shredded (about 1¼ cups)
01In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and ½ teaspoon salt. Toss gently, just until the vegetables begin to wilt, about 1 minute. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes, or until the cabbage softens slightly. Alternatively, cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
