Carrot Salad

I am not one for salads... I wish I liked them more, but I find them boring.
This carrot salad is not boring though! No boring ice burg lettuce leaves. No need for thick gobs of dressing to make up for the lack of flavor.

I got this recipe from my friend Heidi - she's pretty amazing. She has influenced my diet and cooking a lot. Here's to you Heidi!

Carrot Salad
  • 6 medium sized carrots, grated
  • juice of 1-2 lemons
  • half a jalapeño minced
  • handful of cilantro chopped.
Mix together and salt to taste.
