I have been craving cabbage lately, particularly a nice Greek-style cabbage salad, the way my family makes it. So, I decided to try to make it just like my mom did. Here's the recipe I used - it was delicious. Cabbages are in season now, I believe. They do well in the colder weather.

• 1 shredded green cabbage
• 3 shredded carrots
• 1 medium-sized chopped red onion
• 1 large garlic clove, minced
• 2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill (optional)
• 1 tsp. honey
• 1 tsp. lemon zest
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 2 tbsp. olive oil
• Squeeze of lemon juice (about the juice of half a lemon)
• ⅓ cup feta cheese crumbles

1. Shred cabbage and carrot and put them in a large mixing bowl.
2. Add chopped red onion, red bell pepper, and chopped Roma tomatoes.
3. In a smaller mixing bowl, mix minced garlic, fresh dill, honey, lemon zest, salt and pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice.
4. Pour dressing over the vegetable mix and toss well.
5. Add feta cheese crumbles and mix again.
6. Refrigerate for an hour before serving.
I make mine far simpler. I cut up about half a head of green cabbage and put it in a bowl, then I toss it with ladolemono. Here's my ladolemono recipe:

Start by whisking together 1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste, garlic powder (optional) and oregano (optional). I then pour it into a bowl and refrigerate it for about a half hour before tossing into the salad.

Then, I let the salad set for about thirty minutes on the counter before serving. I often top the salad with feta cheese and a sprinkle of oregano (I can't help myself lol).

Seeking Tips: Top Culinary Spots in Greece?

I am planning a trip to Greece and in need of some culinary guidance. Where are the must-visit spots for authentic Greek cuisine? From Athens to the islands, I'm looking for local favorites, hidden gems, and any must-try dishes. Whether it's a bustling market or a cozy taverna, I want to hear about the places that left you craving more. Any tips on where to find the freshest seafood or the crispiest spanakopita?

Visiting Delphi worth it?

I am trying to figure out if visiting Delphi is worth it. I want to fit seeing as many historical sites as I can into my itinerary. I've always been fascinated by ancient cultures and their histories, which naturally puts places like Athens and Santorini on my list. Recently, I've been reading up on Delphi and am intrigued by its significant historical and cultural value, not to mention its picturesque landscapes.

Given its status as the center of the world in ancient Greek civilization and the home of the famous oracle, it sounds like a place full of fascinating stories and ruins. However, I'm also aware that Greece is full of remarkable places to visit, each with its unique allure.

Greek Islands Food Tour?

I am a foodie and I love to cook. Does anyone know of any food tour situations that I can do in the islands, or maybe island hopping?

I am in the midst of planning an exciting adventure to Greece and am particularly interested in experiencing the country through its cuisine. I've heard that island hopping offers not just stunning views but also a taste of local flavors that differ from island to island.

With so many beautiful islands, from the renowned Santorini to the charming Skopelos, I'm looking for recommendations on food tours or culinary experiences that are part of island hopping packages. Any recommendations you may have would be great!

Is Marathon a good day trip from Athens?

I've been planning an itinerary for my upcoming trip to Athens, and I've always been fascinated by the historical significance of Marathon. Considering its role in ancient history and the famous battle that took place there, it seems like a place that might be worth a visit.

However, I'm on the fence about dedicating a whole day trip to Marathon. From what I understand, it isn’t too far from Athens, but I'm trying to weigh up whether the experience is worthy compared to spending that time exploring more within the city itself.

Has anyone made the day trip to Marathon from Athens? Was it an enriching experience, and what are the can't-miss sights? Is the archeological site/museum there engaging enough for a history buff? Also, how about the logistics – is it easy to get to by public transport, or would you suggest renting a car or going with a tour?

I am just trying to decide if it's worth it, or if I should plan to stay overnight. Thanks!
