Shaved Carrot Slaw
A great little side dish, sweet & sour with a little kick. Heirloom Carrots make it special.
Great served with: Glazed Hoisin Salmon with Pine Nuts (see recipe)
Heat 1/2 of a juicy lime in the microwave in a medium sized glass bowl for 20 seconds.
Carefully (can be hot) squeeze the juice, and discard the lime – should have 3 tablespoons.
(This is the best way to get the most juice from citrus.)
Add the sugar, stir well to dissolve.
Add all remaining dressing ingredients, stir to combine.
Shave each with a wide vegetable peeler to create long shavings.
Will have 2 cups of packed carrots.
Add to bowl of dressing, toss and serve.
Add garnishes if desired: toasted cashew halves and sliced Asian chives.
Great with: Glazed Hoisin Salmon with Pine Nuts
