Since the most recent market reports indicate that carrots are still at a great quality and price, we wanted to feature a simple and delicious recipe for spicy carrot salad. Just one serving contains 380% of the adult daily requirement for vitamin A. If you don’t like things spicy, you can decrease or eliminate the chili paste. This recipe would be great served alongside grilled chicken or fish.

Yield: 4 cups · Servings: 8 · Serving Size: 1/2 cup

Ingredients:

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp lemon juice, fresh

1 tsp sambal oelek, ground fresh chili paste

4 cup carrots, coarsely grated

3/8 tsp kosher salt

2 tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped

1 tbsp mint, fresh, chopped

1 tbsp chives, fresh, chopped

Instructions:

Combine first three ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add carrots and salt; toss to coat. Let stand 30 minutes. Just before serving, add cilantro, mint and chives, if desired; toss to combine.

Special Diets:

No Salt Added – omit salt

For less heat, use less chili paste.
