Author Notes: in my garden, veggies often come in gluts and i rely on my many cookbooks to inspire me and be the foundation of great recipes. This one had its beginnings from the Silver Spoon but I changed it up a bit to fit my personal preference —eggs&herbs13
of a small horseradish root
juice of 1/2 lemon
tablespoon white wine vinegar
teaspoon dried mustard
tablespoons olive oil
ounces fresh carrots
salt and pepper to taste
tablespoons curly leaf parsley or cilantro (optional)
- Mix the lemon juice, oil, vinegar, mustard, and sugar in a medium sized bowl.
- Peel the horseradish root. Chop in half and if there is a "woody" as I call it center, remove it. Then thinly slice the horseradish into strips. Add to the bowl with the liquids.
- Peel the carrots and cut into thin strips about 4 inches long. Have the width be about two times larger then you would to julienne carrots.
- Add the carrots to the horseradish mixture and refrigerate for 5-10 minutes, allowing the flavors to seep in to the carrots. Remove and salt and pepper to taste. If desired, sprinkle some roughly chopped parsley or cilantro over the dish to add an extra texture, color, and slight flavor.
