Lucy's Friendly Foods

The sunshine in the last couple of days has had my thought turning to salads, and this one is a particular favourite. Everywhere in France you can buy tubs of ‘Salade de Carottes Râpées‘ and we have a particular fondness for it. For some reason, it’s not something you come across in the UK – it seems that the Brits are keener on creamy mayo drowned salads instead.

This is my take on the French classic! My carrots seemed to taste of nothing so I added 2 tsps of sugar to bring out the flavour – you may want to reduce this if your carrots taste lovely anyway.

Carrot and Parsley Salad (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, peanut-free, vegetarian and vegan)

makes 1 large bowlful

  • 4-5 large carrots, grated
  • 1 large handful of parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsps red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsps caster sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsps sunflower oil
  • pepper to taste

– Whisk together the vinegar, oil, sugar, salt, mustard and pepper. Taste and adjust if needed.

– Pour over the grated carrots and stir well.

– Sprinkle over the parsley and stir to combine. Chill until needed.
