Yield: 4 servings

Course: ,


  • Salad Ingredients:
  • 1 pound carrots (about 4 cups grated)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Dressing Ingredients:
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sugar (or honey)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper


  1. Peel and wash the carrots. Grate them using the large holes of a box grater or use a food processor to grate. Wash, dry, and chop the fresh parsley. In a medium bowl, toss the grated carrots and chopped parsley together. Mix all the dressing ingredients together and pour over the salad. Toss together well. Taste and add more salt or pepper if needed.
  2. Optional add-ons: This is a very adaptable salad. You could swap a different herb for the parsley. You could add grated parsnip or beet to the carrot to make it a rainbow salad. You could add some protein such as chick peas or feta cheese. Make it your own!
