Clean and peel carrots, then grate them finely with a box grater or food processor.
Make a dressing by whisking together the lemon juice, olive oil, Dijon, and sugar with a pinch of salt and pepper. Adjust the seasonings to your taste.
Toss the carrots with the dressing and the parsley. Be careful not to over-dress; as David says, "the carrots should be moistened and glistening, not swimming in dressing."
Garnish with cubed avocado. Serve promptly.

When you say "grate" I assume you mean it's OK to use the fine shredding disk of a food processor? I ask, because I have a food processor that actually has a grating disk which produces a very different result.
