Sesame Ginger Carrot Salad
This is one of my all time favorite salads! It’s fresh, bright, crunchy, full of flavor, and is great as a snack or for dinner when paired with a protein ( I love it with shrimp). It is also my “go-to” meal when I don’t really feel like cooking. Between the colorful veggies and the yummy dressing, it’s hard to resist a bite. I can eat this salad 6 days in a row and still crave it on the 7th day! I may seem like I’m exaggerating, but really, I just like it THAT much!
Carrot Salad: Feeds 2
4-5 medium carrots, peeled into ribbons
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon minced chives
*Black sesame seeds, microgreens, pea shoots*
1 clove garlic
2 teaspoons fresh minced ginger
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sesame oil
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon sriracha
In a bowl combine carrot ribbons ( I peel until I can’t anymore and then thinly slice the rest of the carrot so I don’t waste any!) pepper, scallions, and chives. In a blender combine all dressing ingredients and blend until smooth. Toss carrots in dressing and garnish with sesame seeds, microgreens, and pea shoots. Eat as is or with a protein of choice!
