Description

Shaved carrot and parsley salad! A bright and colorful counterpart to your hearty meals. Made with simple ingredients you probably already have on hand. Paleo and Vegan.


Ingredients

for salad

  • 2 bunches of multi colored carrots (about 10 large carrots)
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped 
  • salt and pepper 

for dressing

  • juice of half a lemon 
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (or another vinegar of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes (optional)


Instructions

  1. Using a mandolin, vegetable peeler, or a sharp knife, shave carrots as thinly as possible. As long as they’re organic, I don’t usually peel the carrots. Just give them a good scrub before slicing and you’ll be good to go. 
  2. Shake together dressing ingredients in a jar and pour over sliced carrots. Toss to coat. Allow to marinate in dressing for about 20 minutes for the best flavor. Stir occasionally to coat. 
  3. Mix in chopped parsley and season with a little more salt and some black pepper if desired.
