Greek Cabbage Salad (Lahano Salata)
This easy lahano salata is my go-to for meal prep – it only gets better with time!
This salad is the best crunchy salad to make a day in advance and just let it sit in the fridge overnight. It literally takes 15 minutes to slice and chop everything and the dressing only has a few ingredients to whisk together. You can sub in lemon for the vinegar if you prefer that flavor.

I was really at loose ends – not really in the mood for anything, but I needed to eat something good. This is so tasty and really hit the spot!
I added some fresh mint, and omitted the honey.
This would be a great side dish for fish.
Let’s face it – Feta and olives make everything fabulous ( :
Thoughts on dried dill?
sure! just try it and then add more…
I was having a challenging day and had no appetite, but definitely needed to eat something. I put this salad together in no time and it was just what the dr. ordered.
I’m going to make it again tomorrow!
I used Castelvetrano olives (what I had in the house) and 86’d the honey.
Your salads are the best!
thank you so much for trying it out! LOVE green olives!
Sorry for the double post, I thought the first one hadn’t worked / :
Just as expected- a unique flavorful salad. Crunchy with surprise bursts of salty umami from the feta and olives. I used mixed olives and a few peppadews.
