Total Time: 15 mins
Servings: 4 people as a side
Originating in France, where it’s called carottes râpées, this French Carrot Salad is perfect alongside any simply cooked meat or fish.
- 4 large or 6 medium carrots (peeled and topped and tailed)
- 1 spring onion
- 1½ tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- ½ tablespoon lime juice
- ¾ teaspoon honey
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Few grindings black pepper
- ½ tablespoon nigella seeds
Coarsely grate the carrots (I like to hold them flat against the grater to get the longest strips possible).
Finely slice the spring onion on the diagonal and toss with the carrot.
Mix together the olive oil, mustard, lime juice, honey and seasoning. Pour over the carrot mixture and toss together.
Sprinkle over the nigella seeds.
