Carrot Salad

Image and Recipe idea courtesy of The Nourishing Gourmet

I was in the kitchen pondering what I could make for dinner when all of a sudden I had a brilliant idea. I am not going to tell you the full scope of this idea but I will tell you that this amazing recipe is what goes on top of it, you’ll just have to come back to find out.

Carrot Slaw is what I originally wanted to put on top of my idea but after a few minutes of searching on Google I discovered that the worlds idea of Carrot Slaw involves a LOT of mayonnaise or sour cream and that’s not the direction I wanted to go in. I wanted something vinegary, sharp, and that had a bite to it so it could stand up to the main dish I planned on pairing it with. After altering my search criteria I stumbled upon the joy that is carrot salad and this amazing recipe which I fell in love with.

It has gone through only slight modification.
