carrot salad

After hearing about a carrot salad on Bea's blog, I googled a recipe from Orangette. The salad is very simple and apparently can be found in many French bistros. Here is the post with the recipe on Orangette.

The dressing for the carrots is so light and simple that it brings out the natural sweetness of the carrots. I didn't have a julienne blade for my food processor, so I ended up shredding the carrots. Also I added a couple of grinds of pepper and didn't add the garlic. (Since Satoshi is in sales, he is conscientious of his breath, so I try not to make foods with garlic in them on weekdays.) I think I'll be making this often this summer!
