Bistro Carrot Salad
from: Vegetables Every Day by Jack Bishop
This simple grated salad is a standard in French homes and restaurants. A little minced tarragon works especially well with the sweetness of the carrots, but parsley is fine. Serve this salad as is or spooned over some tender leafy lettuces.

1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
4 medium carrots (about 3/4 pound), peeled
1 tbsp minced fresh tarragon or parsley leaves

1. Whisk the lemon juice and oil together in a large bowl. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
2. Grate the carrots using the shredding disk of a food processor or the large holes on a box grater.
3. Stir the carrots into the vinaigrette. Stir in the tarragon and serve immediately.

Thank You Melissa M. for sharing this one with the coop!!!
