I am always looking for tasty, easy and healthy ways to serve veggies. Partly for my family’s health and tastebuds but also because I get bored of the same old roasting, steaming or stir-frying veggie routine. Especially in the winter when our local vegetable varieties are somewhat limited to having root veggies many times a week.
This wonderfully fresh, clean tasting carrot salad is a popular dish in France.
Salade de Carotte Rapee
(adapted from David Lebovitz’s blog:’Living the Sweet Life in Paris”)
7-8 carrots, peeled and finely grated
Fresh parsley, cleaned, thoroughly dried and coarsely chopped
2 lemons, juiced
2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tsp honey
freshly ground pepper
Lightly mix the carrots and the parsley.
Prepare the dressing by mixing all of the ingredients.
Mix the dressing into the carrot mixture.
Taste and adjust seasonings. Then move the whole mixture into a bowl that sets off the gorgeous color of the carrots!
You can add other raw grated veggies such as broccoli stems or celeriac. I think a little finely grated fresh ginger would be nice also.
Because parsley comes in such a huge bunch – use it all and add a bunch to a smoothie and salads
