French Grated Carrot Salad Recipe

Well worth the 20 minutes it takes to whip up this one. Use your fresh carrots and parsley from the farm and enjoy!


  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil (or a mix of the two), or use 2 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt or buttermilk and 4 tablespoons oil

  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar or white-wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • Salt and black pepper

  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and grated

  • ¼ cup finely chopped parsley


Whisk together the oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and mustard in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Add the carrots and parsley and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate before serving (I recommend making this 30 minutes to 1 hour ahead, then tossing again). Recipe from NYT Cooking.
