1 head cabbage
2-3 cloves carrots
Vinegar or lemon juice
1. 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. Alternately each quarter can be sliced by using a mandolin.
2. Grate the carrots using a box grater or mandolin.
3. Place cabbage and carrots in a bowl and dress it with salt, pepper, oil and vinegar or lemon to taste. Toss well and serve. Olives may be used as a garnish. Traditionally, this salad has a tart flavor (extra vinegar or lemon juice).
