Hello there friends, how are you? It's been a while since my last post, but starting from today, I'm back at my normal routine - schedule. I didn't have the chance to visit your blogs yet and read your posts, but I will any moment now..
Today I have a wonderful winter salad very famous in my Hometown back in Thrace - Greece. This salad is tastier and better if you prepare it one day or two days before serving, and that is because it needs to marinade. So the longer it stays in the fridge, the more tastier it is.
Give it a try!
Ingredients (A large salad bowl)
1/2 medium green cabbage thinly sliced
3 grated carrots
2 stalks of celery sliced, use the leaves too
1 red bell pepper, sliced in to thin strips (You can also use roasted red peppers in a jar)
10 Kalamata Olives pitted
6 Pepperoncini (pickled small hot peppers)
200 ml water
80 ml red or white wine vinegar
Salt, a pinch of sugar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil for serving
1/2 cup of flat parsley finely chopped for serving
How to make
Using a large bowl with a lid, toss together the cabbage, carrots, celery, bell pepper, season with salt, add sugar and cover with water. Add the vinegar, close the lid and let the ingredients to marinade at least 6-8 hours and up to 3 days.
When it's time to serve, strain the vegetables and put them in a salad bowl. Add the Kalamata Olives, pepperoncini, parsley, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and season to taste. It may need some more vinegar, it's up to you..!
Serve and enjoy!!
