Grated Carrot Salad – Carrot Rapee

French Grated Carrot Salad (Carrot Rapee) by a little bit of soy

It is cheap and versatile. These are the reasons why a bag of carrots is always in my fridge. I probably cook carrot every day. I put it in soup, simmer it in stew, stir-fry it with Asian sauce and just cut it as a veggie stick… For me, it is a kind of vegetable which is always there, therefore I do not pay much attention to.

However, today, I would like to introduce a salad featuring carrot, my French Grated Carrot Salad – Carrot Rapee.

In this salad, carrot beautifully plays a leading role. The orange colour look really vibrant on a table. The well balanced dressing is so right with the carrot’s earthy flavour. A secret is definitely cumin powder, which gives a bit of excitement to the salad.

If you would like to make it a little bit fancier, add some walnuts, cranberries or Italian parsley (all of them or some of them – as you like!).

This grated carrot salad is really easy to make, looks great and is tasty to eat. Hope this colourful salad makes your table brighter…

 Ingredients: 
2-3 Carrots

<Dressing>
1 Teaspoon of Honey
1 Teaspoon of Dijon Mustard
50ml of Lemon Juice
100ml of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/3 Teaspoon of Cumin Powder

<Optional>
2 handfuls of Walnuts
A handful of Dried Cranberries
A handful of fresh Italian Parsley - chopped 
Method:

1. Grate carrots. 

2. Make dressing. Combine all of the ingredients until it is homogenised. 

3. Pour the dressing over the carrots and combine. If you would like to make the salad fancier, add your choice of the optional.
