French Carrot Salad
Thu 18th, Oct, 2012
Beach Cottage girlfriends, you need this recipe in your life.
We all know I am all about the looking good without doing anything much, this is rather tricky with hair and one’s ahem face but, with recipes, this is that in a nutshell.
This is so ridiculously amazingly easy but tastes like you spent a lot of time thinking, preparing and working at this that it is a Too Easy Recipe all over.
I don’t have any exciting story to tell you about this…no memories of holidays in the South or indeed the West of France and I have no idea where it came from, when or how I found it but I do know this.
You should make it too.
This goes beautifully with a barbecue and ticks most admirably the Australian conundrum when one is asked to ‘just bring a salad’– I have said before that those 4 humble words when you are fresh off the boat can leave you looking like a prize, English idiot – your salads need to rock in this land of beauty..this so does that for you quickly and easily
Beach Cottage Recipe
French Carrot Salad
4 large carrots (about 500g)
1 tablespoon parsley
6 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 garlic clove finely chopped or minced
1. grate carrots finely
2. whisk lemon juice, olive oil & garlic, salt & pepper
3. pour vinaigrette over carrots and mix
4. serve with the parsley
THAT IS IT!
Truly, unbelievably it is as simple as that and it ROCKS.
This is lazy girl salad with a Beach Cottage Too Easy twist…meaning it tastes fandabbydozy, when all you did was a little bit of grating and pouring of zee oil plus if you, like me, often have sad and lonely looking carrots hanging around in the bottom of your vegetable drawer in the fridge, this my friends, will use them up very well.
The best thing about this is the Beach Cottage Crew love it…every single time I make it (I double up this recipe) there is never enough and always people asking more…and where veggies and kids are concerned I feel I can’t go wrong with that.
See you next time lovelies.
