This recipe is the is so simple, you’ll wonder why you did not think of it yourself. It comes from a wonderful cookbook called, Olives and Oranges by Sara Jenkins and Mindy Fox. I like to make this as a side dish when we serve burgers.
4 large carrots, grated or julienned
1/2 cup plus 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, or more to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt, or to taste
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley or cilantro
1. Combine carrots, lemon juice, and salt in a medium bowl.
2. Allow to sit at room temperature for 5 minutes.
3. Stir in oil and parsley.
4. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
5. Serve, or let sit at room temperature for up to 6 hours.
I like to use cilantro for this recipe. If I cannot find organic cilantro, then I will use parsley.
