Serious Salads: Grated Carrot and Mint Salad with Honey Lemon Vinaigrette
This time of year the vegetable bin can be a little sparse, but it seems there are always carrots. In this salad they're coarsely grated in a food processor and tossed with fresh mint, currants and a lightly sweetened lemon vinaigrette. It's a bright, refreshing salad, delicious on its own with a warm buttered baguette or as a side to simple roast chicken.
Let it sit a few hours before serving if possible so the carrots have a chance to marinate in the dressing.
