Super Carrot Salad
Grated carrots (carottes râpées), is a very common starter in France. I have my own version (a meal in itself), which I call the super carrot salad, and here is how you can create your own too:
Mix all the ingredients for the dressing in a large bowl
Carrots: about 2 large carrots per person, grated. You can chose to grate them coarsely (like on the pictures) or more finely (like we would traditionally have them in France)
Onions: a couple of spring onions or ½ red onion, finely chopped
Cheese: choice of soft goat’s cheese, feta, labne, paneer, blue cheese – or any you like, really – crumbled
Nuts & Seeds: choice of walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc – chopped
This is as simple as that, so have a go and pick and mix your favourite ingredients!
PS: the flower is optional, but our garden is covered in dandelion and I thought it would add a colourful touch to the salad.
Have a great weekend!
