This is a really delicious salad. ‘Nuff said.
6 or 7 medium carrots
1 – 1 1/2 c cilantro leaves and thin stems
1 T sesame seeds, optional
2 T lemon juice or lime juice or a combination
4 T orange juice
1 c extra virgin olive oil
1 t toasted sesame oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Grate carrots or make into ribbons using a vegetable peeler. The latter makes for a lovely-looking salad. Put into a serving bowl. Add cilantro leaves and sesame seeds and stir to combine.
2. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl or jar. Taste and adjust any ingredients.
3. Add about half the dressing to carrot mixture and toss to combine. This may be enough for your salad, depending on the size of your carrots. Add more or the rest as you wish. Serve immediately, or not. It’s great either way.
