The key word for this recipe is "fresh". Quality of ingredients definitely makes a difference here; summer is the perfect time of year to snag fresh, heirloom carrots, radishes and herbs. - totalnoms —totalnoms

Test Kitchen Notes

Easy and simple, this tastes very much like a seaweed salad at a sushi joint. I found the three julienned radishes to look spare and lonely, so I julienned two more for the salad. totalnoms is right, this is a really fresh dish. My first thought was ‘wouldn't this be yummy with shredded seaweed in it?!’ My husband thought a bit of heat might be a nice addition. Maybe another time. In its original format, this recipe makes a lovely, fresh, flavorful dish! - em-i-lis —em-i-lis

What You'll Need
  • 3 medium carrots

  • 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

  1. Scrub carrots and radishes. Peel carrots, and shred using a mandoline, or in a food processor fitted with a shredding disk. Julienne radishes into thin matchsticks.
  2. Transfer shredded carrots and julienned radishes into a serving bowl. Pour in rice vinegar, sesame oil, honey and lemon juice, and toss vegetables to coat evenly. Sprinkle with shredded parsley.

Hi totalnoms, we tried your exact recipe so we could report back to the eds accurately, but were just noodling on the idea of the seaweed. i'll let you know if we try it. :) my sons (2 and 5) just tried our small bit of leftovers of your slaw and LOVED it. so, a family hit. :)
