Fay's Lahano Salata (Cabbage Salad)


1 head Cabbage 

2-3 grated Carrots 

1 green capsicum finely  sliced

1 red Capsicum  finely  sliced

Olive oil 

Vinegar or lemon juice 

Salt 

Pepper 


Cut the cabbage in half and discard the outer tough leaves and the inner core. Cut each half into quarters and wash under cold water. Place each quarter on its side and slice very thin slices with a sharp knife. Do the same for the capsicums Alternately each quarter can be sliced by using a mandolin.

Grate the carrots using a box grater or mandolin.

Place cabbage and carrots in a bowl and dress it with salt, pepper, oil and vinegar or lemon to taste. Toss well and serve. Traditionally, this salad has a tart flavor (extra vinegar or lemon juice).
