Healthy, Simple, Amazing, and Fun!
Complexity Level: Easy
When I lived in France, all the grocery stores had prepared healthy salads that I would grab for lunch. It was there that I became obsessed with Tabouleh, the laughing cow cheese (la vache qui rire), and a carrot salad called "Carrottes -- pronounced ra-pays. For a very simple lesson in french, "
At any rate, Today I was prepping for Thanksgiving, and by prepping I mean literally making my Thanksgiving day easy and all about not having much to do:
Sweet Potatoes, Onions, Celery, Garlic... OH MY!
Well, while prepping, I found a large bag of carrots I had bought in the event I wanted to make carrot cake, carrot bread, or carrot pie. I have since then changed my carrot needs, and then as it it were meant to be, a flash back of my french days hit me... and without thinking about what I was doing I quickly whipped up a carrot salad that took this French favorite of mine, and gave it an American twist.
A quick and simple side for any occasion!
